Don't think it would hurt for a short experiment with a relatively
low-powered transformer. I agree it's not a good idea in general.
The test you propose for the capacitor seems like a bad idea to me. It doesn't subject the cap to the type of RF-duty that a TC would. Instead it just repeatedly charges the cap, then discharges it into an effective dead-short (the spark gap). This is a bad idea even for suitable caps.
