I can give a personal example:
when i first started i had to learn form on my own, so it was a lot of trial and error. In my head I was doing this "dip" as Koklyaev, but in reality I was just having that useless movement Rippetoe talks about. I would squat down, think I am tight, start the lift then my hips would shoot up to the position they should be in. It looked like a 2-part failsquat stiff legged deadlift. It was really ugly. I wouldn't suggest it for newbies, unless they are weightlifting, but that's another topic.
Maybe you are right about the height, maybe not.
In the end of the day, like it was said before, you should learn how to make your body do the proper work/movement
