Pretty close. Having a wheelbase length that puts the rear axles in the "zone" between the middle of your heel and the ankle bone gives more maneuvering and turning ability. Check out the skates being used in the troca video

You could also try reversing the plate, putting the toe stop at your heel for a heel brake and moving the now front wheels even closer to your toe.
