I do the same thing here. Having those stakes already perfectly planted is a welcome advantage during a late night deployment.
Several times I have actually staked out all 4 corners and then rolled up the entire tarp on the ridge line for a (nearly) full sky view. Connecting lines to the pre-placed stakes later is a breeze if needed.
