I agree that this would be a great option.
Sometimes you can get into serious trouble on a complex project if you haven't prototyped it first. Just don't show your first prototype to the wrong person or you might have your raw prototype put into production right away and be stuck with tons of technical debt right from the start (that's where I'm at right now).
