Workbench modification for long-planing

I can't believe this hasn't been thought of before, but I just thought of it, so yay me.

If you have a woodworking bench with a well, a series of dog-holes staggered down the centre line will allow you to use the dogs to wedge a plank up against one of the lips of the well, holding it securely along its entire length.

It wouldn't be absolutely necessary that the walls of your well be perfectly square, but obviously that would be the ideal case.
