I do this frequently, and remember doing it a lot in school in order to figure out which teachers were approaching.  

In addition, it's interesting to try identifying people based on their body shape as opposed to based on their face -- there are a lot of subtle variations in proportion, height-weight distribution, and limb outline that can actually be used to distinguish different people more accurately than facial features at a greater distance (and, in addition, the "body shape" method of identification has the benefit of not requiring that the other person be facing you).
