The rear brake is powerful enough not to need engine braking. Also the braking power is more easily controlled when the engine doesn't interfere, especially if it's nearly stalling.
I was told in riding school to pull the clutch but not shift down because it's better to focus only on the braking. I think that might be good advice for beginners, but never liked it for myself.
