I treat it the same as passing stopped left-turners on the right. It helps traffic flow, gets the next car back closer to the intersection, I get out of stacked traffic, and when done safely the potential risk is no greater than sitting and waiting.
This is ONLY when traffic is stopped. If traffic is moving I'll stay in line and wait my turn.
