Can you use thinset on Tile Redi pan?

Using the thinset (under) the pan would be okay as far as I can see. Using the thinset to set tile directly to the "plastic" Tile-Redi shower pan would not be a good idea. I have used regular mortar products under those type of shower and tub bases for years without a hitch.
