I do that with all my cameras that dont have info windows, and even tape box end panels on my cameras without either(Duaflexs and ilk)

I leave the leaders out on my 35mm film and start them into developing reels in room light before going dark, then wind them into the reels. I then cut the film free of the cassett after film is nearly completely on reel. I almost never open film cassetts any more.
Note: you cannot do this if you are squeaking extra exposures on a roll of 35mm.
