I thought I did and still blew out two discs squatting 200#. If I had a good base, then form was the issue. If my form was good then I didn't have the core strength. (In my case, I rounded at the bottom of an ATG squat due to poor hip mobility.)
My point is, before we assume too much, ask yourself if you want to prescribe an exercise intensity that puts someone into the hospital?
Of course, the better answer is too err on the side of caution and work up through a scheduled progression. That will provide safer more rewarding training for all new lifters. Some lifters could make bigger jumps, but some can't. Can you tell the difference at a glance?

I would agree that the squat is more difficult and more technical but it is also the king of all lifts. I think it should be mastered first, once you start squatting everything falls into place.

if you can not manage 135 your F'd in general.... unless very young or a woman.
just saying, unless you've been bed ridden from birth, you should be able to get a plate.
