I coast around in neutral every chance I get , it and low rpm shifting are my favorite and most effective Eco-driving tricks that I employ.

I agree that if you need to hammer on your bakes you should not have chosen neutral at that time or place.
Some trial and errors may be needed but it is easy to master, you can shift between 5th and neutral in order to control your speed..
