seems like it would be less strenuous on both the clutch and engine.
Maybe. Once the engine stops spinning though, the inlet manifold very quickly fills with air at atmospheric pressure. Every time you start the engine, it is, initially at least, in an equivalent state to wide open throttle.

It's (throttle open) easy enough to try anyway.
