If you play only free strokes with the fingers curled then you could probably use the pinky. But I use rest strokes a lot. Rather than curling the middle joint of the finger most of the motion of the rest stroke comes from the base joint. This leaves the pinky hopelessly too short to work with the rest of the fingers. Having both rest and free strokes is important to me.
