Using latex or slime liquids inside a tubeless setup is a good way of preventing this, unless you tear a hole in your tyre big enough to have to repair it. There are special patches applied from inside the tyre that let you finish your journey to the next repair shop. To apply the patch, you just remove the bead from the rim where needed, no need to remove the wheel on most occasions.
Yes, it is good idea to prevent flats as much as reasonably possible. In addition to that.. there are times that the tire may need to be replaced due to wear or age. Before I was just laying my wheel on the floor when doing work on the tube or tire.. this bucket idea would make fore less potential damage to the wires and connectors, in addition to preventing scrapts or injury to the rim too.. I was just thinking I could also lay a couple hand towels over the rim of the bucket and it would even give better support and reisstance to getting scratched while servicing the tire and wheel.
