Believe it or not, the LOTG place no restriction on taking a quick free kick unless it meets certain constraints. The referee can always indicate that he is going to want a ceremonial restart, but he is not required to if none of the conditions are met (injury, booking, has to talk to a player, etc.).

I do think the laws need some clarity here, but based on how they are written now this is a perfectly legitimate goal.
