Brakes, EOC (engine off coasting) and reserve vacuum

I don't EOC but have in the past and I've found that with the motor off, the power brakes have 3 pumps before you lose them and revert to manual. I also found that if you make a brake application and don't release the brake all the way but just enought to stop the slowing that you won't run out of vacuum for quite awhile and can make multiple applications with no problem. Has anyone else try this or want to verify it. On a deserted road of course. So far It works for 2 of the cars I have driven. It might help with the EOC discussion and safety.
