Yes, I consider it more than "acceptable"... for my working style, it's
nearly essential to have a visual clearance aid while placing traces.
 
So many of our boards have minimum-spaced traces and if I don't have
that turned on, I'm constantly squinting at the layout trying to decide
if I left enough space or too much.  By contrast, I can't remember the
last time I paid any attention a *visible* grid.  The combination of a 1
mil non-visible grid and a visible clearance line around new traces
during drawing works out really great for me, as all my feature and
space sizes are typically in even numbers of mils.
 
I'm probably still completely happy if the clearance aid is something
related to the current trace style and not a DRC clearance number
per-se.  I just really wouldn't want to lose the feature of a visible
clearance "bubble" around the trace I'm currently drawing.
