Yes it works but it isn't stable. I'd certainly never balance a customers bike that way.
True. It's been a few years since I did that frame swap; I remember it wasn't that stable but still managed to get the job done. Sometimes you have to make do with what you have for the time being.
As for a shop or having paying customers, that's another story. I'd have all the right tools/stands/etc for every job.

If you dont like it dont ****ing buy it. I bought one and I love it. Many others have bought them and loved them.
Oh, wah! Lol. Don't get your panties in a bunch.
I'm not opposed to having a side stand and have mentioned in another thread that I considered buying one, but it still wouldn't achieve what the Abba Sky Lift stand or having a work table/lift can do in terms of getting the bike off the ground to a more comfortable height.
I currently kneel, sit on my ass, lay on my back, or sit on my seat creeper when working on my bike. Depending on what I'm doing or how long I work on my bike, my neck or lower back will get sore sometimes. Getting the bike higher would alleviate that. A HF lift with a coupon or building a work table would be a cheaper solution than the Abba Sky Lift stand.
