I would say lifting a wheel and a wheelie are two different things.

I wheelie a lot, because it's addictive and fun as hell. It's also a TERRIBLE idea with very few redeeming qualities (outside of trials type riding) and a lot of risk, esp to insurance premiums


That being said, it's actually a lot harder to loft the wheel on dirt, and knowing how to compress the forks and change the bike's stance is most definitely a valuable skill, and lofting the front makes when you need to makes riding a lot better/safer.
