I feel that if you yourself want to get into kamae while waiting for an attack, that's fine. What I find odd is that a spontaneous, free flowing art such as aikido uses different 'stances'... in a "real" situation, you won't have time to say "hold on! let me get into the right kamae real quick!"

Zanshin, grasshopper.
