That's funny since it adds an extra keystroke. Whatever works. A keyboarding style that "feels" right is important. My style is odd too; I type like a beginner (using my index fingers almost exclusively.. I only vary in using my thumb for space and ring finger for enter) but I do it pretty fast. We had a typing class in high school and the teacher kept trying to get me to do that ASDF - JKL; finger positioning. I was doing like 30 wpm with 87% accuracy when I did it her way. I then ran the testing program again doing it my way and got 105 wpm, 99% accuracy lol. I've found that I've slowed down in my old age though, I was doing high 80s last time I tested myself.
I did this when I was a kid, but I later trained myself to use the shift key.

It is kind of weird, but you know what's also weird?
Typing almost exclusively with your left hand (i.e. I use all my fingers on my left hand while I type, while I pretty much only use one finger on my right hand). But hey, I get a WPM of around ~94, so it works for me.
If using Caps Lock instead of Shift works for you, then it doesn't really matter.
