I've never heard of anyone using the lower string as a safety net (I assume you mean physically lower and not lower in pitch), it would require an almost vertical pulloff motion and you'd risk...

Almost anything can be refingered, if you're having trouble consider moving it. eg, from 10th fret low E to 5th fret A. :)
