You are absolutely correct! There is a very real possibility of hydraulic lock. In a pinch doing it a teaspoon at a time or spraying with a spray bottle is more effective. Having had to remove water
from the on engine filter and not even having a screwdriver handy to bleed the system, we would pour some clean fuel into the filter cup. Close it up, and put a few spray can caps of clean fuel in the air intake and it would run long enough to self bleed, albeit, not very well!
The previous owner swore that the tank was full but neglected to tell us it was 1/2 water
