Is it bad form to pack away miniatures as they become out-of-action during a game?

I often do this, as it is just as easy to pull them off the table and put them in their storage, as it is to pull them and place them elsewhere. Often the only places for figures to go are to the edges of the gaming area, and putting them away helps protect them. Also, it helps speed up clean-up at the end.

Now if the figures are used for combat resolution or something, I'll keep them on the table until they are no longer needed. Also, if the action is fast and furious, the casualties tend to be tipped over until I'm in down time as a player. That is, I wait until my interaction with the game is not required, and then put I them away.

Still, is that bad form?
