Although I can easily do this stretch without any problems, I no longer do it due to warnings from people who know better than me (nurses, body workers, physical therapists) who have said that the above stretch is bad for the knees.
I also heard an opinion that this stretch puts a considerable strain on the (lower?) back if one needs to arch the back to touch the mat with the head and the shoulders. When doing this stretch, I lower my back as far as it can go without arching.
