Locking ‘Biner On First Draw?

A discussion here on the benefit/drawback of using a locking ‘biner on the first quickdraw on a bolt. I climbed with a guy who did this occasionally – when the 2nd bolt was way above the 1st one and off to one side, and where the crux was low. There is some ridicule of the idea in this forum and also some support. I always thought it’d be a good idea in certain circumstances; never did it though.
