It wouldn't fit into our system of ukemi wherein everything (OK, *most* everything) is some variation of a front roll.

BTW, the way I, personally, do sumi-otoshi, Uke has few options for ukemi other than a flat fall to his rear. I vary a lot of techniques that way. It's part of my idea that aikido should be about minimizing my own openings and possibly maximizing those of Uke.

Regards,
