Yes. The few times I have EOC'd the transmission was not happy about going back into gear for the bump start.

15 seconds shouldn't bother the throwout bearing, I was picturing a 5 minute coast down and beyond a big hill holding the clutch the whole way.
The bigger question here: Is the throwout bearing SPINNING when the engine is off, which I think it is not, in which case you can hold it down for as long as you want as long as the engine is off. I would definitely be shifting to neutral for a 5 minute coast though.
