Lightbulb Engine Off Coasting Damaging My Car?

Sometimes I like to turn the engine off if I'm going down a hill and then use the clutch to start the car again instead of putting more wear on the starter, but is that hurting something? Is the sudden jerk of the engine and transmission turning over again damaging something? Should I be concerned? Will having worn out motor mounts make it worse? This is something I have always wondered about but was never able to really find a good answer for. Thanks!
