Certainly citation of personal communications is common in the fields of history and philosophy of science, where it represents an effort to responsibly represent the source of ideas owed to other persons.
I don't dispute that.
It's not really a question of whether you personally would do it; it's a question of whether org will support a practice that exists in some real-world contexts.
What I dispute is that such "non-citations" are dangling pointers, better replaced by incises or footnotes ... or proper citations.
