Linear drains in curbless showers

I am having a curbless shower built and like the tile in type of linear drain. Such as this Quickdrain.

The product page says "This style is not recommended for installation in the threshold of a curbless shower... You might also consider locating the drain at the back wall if TileIn is your preferred style." I'm interpreting this to mean that you shouldn't put the drain along the glass which separates the inside/outside of the shower, but that it is OK to use it on the opposite side of the shower.

What I'm wondering is if I can use it on the edge "between" the threshold and the back wall. In my case I have a 8' x 4' shower. The threshold is along the 8' edge. If I'm reading the product page right I can put the linear drain along the 8' edge across from the threshold. But what if I want to put the drain on the 4' edge? The floor will be sloped in the direction of the drain. Is this configuration OK?
