People do that a lot. Ever since I was a kid.
I believe it is.

Well thanks but trust me it's an easy set up.
Replicate it sometime as an assistance movement and you'll be surprised at how easy it is to get carried away on. It's even exaggerated for me with my pretty long arms. Tiny ROM but the bar is I think about 2" inches below my knees. I just really like it as a heavy glute/ham movement.
Semi-related but I've strongly considered taking Lilly's latest deadlift advice and trying to rotate sumo work into my next cycle here and there.
Say on the first heavy deadlift day I alternate sets one between the other. My best sumo pull in the past year(well first ever PR there I guess) was 485 and given that my current conventional is 525(from a 1.5" deficit) I think the difference in intensity will come out in the wash. Especially given how "easy" the recommended %'s are.
I wouldn't be opposed to being a sumo puller if, by some small chance, it turned out I could move bigger weight that way. I very much empathize with the position of it being the less diesel of the two. Compounded by my proportions and hip mobility really allowing me to take advantage of what would be the most common reasons people dog the sumo pull.
