I imagine that's true, but it's also a completely different movement from the conventional deadlift, no? I mean, they have deadlift in the name, but otherwise, I don't really see similarities between the two.
Do you have the goal of competing in powerlifting/having a higher meet total? If not, I feel like you may be served better to elevate the plate height instead, at least if your goal is to perform the Starting Strength routine.
All that said, I have a short torso and long limbs, and I find that'd ideal for conventional pulling. You actually tend to see sumo work better with folks with longer torso and shorter legs.
