Microfocus, Focus Peaking and Floor Carpet

Any one ever used Focus Peaking to help do your Microfocus Adjustments ?

I was spending some time with the new 16-50mm when I noted the Focus Peaking made a nice yellow stripe across the berber carpet at the infocus distance.  About a foot thick at 6 feet looking down from a chair.

So I started to adjust the Micro Focus until the strip ran so that the spot focus point was near the center.

Took some test shots seems be pretty good.
