I can't see much difference between that, and just having a normal rollerbag under the seat in front of the child - which you pull out midflight, stand on its edge, and rest the childs feet on.

If you were trying to use this device prior to takeoff, or while the seatbelt sign was on, that's a definite no-no. But midflight, I'm not sure I understand what concern there may be.
How about it would inhibit the quick evacuation of the child or of the person seated between the child and the aisle (if it was in a B or E seat on a narrow body for example)?
