Not sure they are listed by the manufacturer for such use...but neither is tie wire. My concern would be that the pressure put on the pencil rod by the clamp might buckle the ceiling.

The grid is real bad already so far the few I have used have not bothered the grid and a couple have pulled it into place. I have not seen or found any code rules against it I figure they hold the best of all options should be ok

You cant use pencil rod to support emt if the pencil rod is holding up the ceiling. Technically using ty wraps around it is a violation.
