Default Specialty grains

What are the negatives and positives of putting specialty grains in early while waiting to bring water temp up to 155 degrees?

Not really anything negative, positive would be saving a little time being able to start the timer right when temperature reaches 155?

No negatives at all. I cold steep up until I reach 148*F and then start my timer. I don't count any of the time toward my steeping time but feel like I may get a little extra something out of the process.
