That would indeed be optimal. The only downside I can see is that you might get investigated for chip dumping. But then you can direct the investigators to this strategy thread to explain why your unconventional play was actually strategically correct.
More seriously, remember that in any hand, the relevant stack size is the smaller one. So even though your stack got big, it does not allow you to play more speculative hands like we do in deep stacked cash games, because you still don't get proper implied odds
if villain's stack is not deep too. So loosening up is usually burning money.
