maybe, but if it's utg+2 or so, then it's going to be ~5 minutes or so before they'll be able to take that seat, and while they're hovering, there's a good chance the floor will send somebody else over to fill it. Plus I don't think many people are actually going to try and angle it that way. How many people actually abuse the not posting system by changing tables 100 times a day? none I that I know, I can't see this being a lot different
