I always do it that way - I never shift into "P" unless my foot is on the brake or the handbrake is set. If it's my foot on the brake, then I don't remove it until I set the emergency brake.
One exception: when I park overnight inside my garage, I know the surface is level and so wil not load up the pawl on the transmission.
This is so simple and easy to do, yet I am amazed how many people disregard this and use the transmission pawl to hold their car parked.
