There are people and pros who use this tactic. Heck, I use it often too. They call them "moonballers." It used to be pretty popular especially on the women's tour. e.g. Anastasia Myskina.
Etiquette? I consider it a very legit strategy. There are ways to deal with it like hitting on the rise, coming in to volley, etc. People who can't adapt deserve to lose to a moonballer as much as a person who can't return fast shots should lose to a hard-hitter.
