Can I do auxiliary elevations without going across the drawing?

This question, as most Design and Communication Graphics questions, is difficult to describe with words. I was doing an auxilary elevation question (pic related), but instead of projecting the elevation to the left hand side, I projected the elevation to the right hand side and simply marked my heights towards the plan rather than away from it. This leads to an identical end result and theres nothing I could find in the marking scheme that explicitly says the method is wrong (will attach in comments) except for the sample picture. Theres no real substantial reason why I would prefer this beyond a mild preference of drawing in the top right corner, which can be easily resolved by just having a wider right margin; though I am curious if my “method” is legitimite.

Marking scheme for auxillary elevation.

Have you ever heard of superimposing? You don't lose marks for it.

Also use datum lines if you're a neat freak.
