Routinely :) Often archiving piles of floppies as images too.
Imagine the legacy gaming crowd does this as well to use, while preventing loss.
Also, fdformat(1), fdcontrol(8), fdread(1), and fdwrite(1) are important
complimentary tools for people too! I even use fdformat -F.

Please don't. I also think there are motherboards still shipping with
real floppy interfaces.
