Default get queued messages as a ping?

On page 49 of the standard it states that a Get STATUS_MESSAGES command of type STATUS_NONE shall be used to establish if a responder is alive on the link and is still talking. I have always used a Get QUEUED_MESSAGES command for this as it has the effect of also collecting things like a queued message generated when the DMX address has been changed at the responder. This saves me the extra step + traffic of having to ask for the queued messages separately.

Is it important that I follow the spec to the letter in this case where I really just want to be occasionally ping my responders? should I change my implementation?
