I have only known of one guy who did it this way, but am not sure how much better or worse it would have been over the other styles.
I don't know anyone who's ever done that, and I'm not sure it would or wouldn't be beneficial. IMO it would be pretty difficult/awkward getting yourself properly set up under the bar already squatted down that far.
