This does sound like a really good training tool, but if you get accustomed to hitting the center of a 65 sq-in standard, and then switch to a midplus, you'll be calibrated to hitting 2-4" above the center of your modern frame's head, where it might feel less than ideal. This is what I do habitually, having learned on standards and small mids, and nowadays, I really loathe playing with >98 sq-in frames, because the sweet spot is far too near my hand.
