Default Hook grip, or not?

I've searched online and wanted to see what you guys thought about this...

Most sources demand using the hook grip, always, when performing the Olympic-style lifts. (Snatch and Clean and Jerk) To do otherwise, is to bring great shame upon your house.

But, like I did with mixed grip in powerlifting, can't I reserve hook grip for "maximal" (heavier) loads, so that everything less than can strengthen my grip?

Thanks!

EDIT: I was going to ask on a couple of other sites also, but I decided against it to avoid the backlash and minimal actual advice/thoughts.
