Default Confusing SSA hand signals that should be changed

We in Australia use the wing runner for all signals, the launch commences when the glider pilot gives a thumbs up to the runner,
who then levels the wings and waves his arm below the waist as a take up slack signal, then when the rope is tight, waves his arm above his head.
Never seen any problems with this practice.
