You need to make sure that solder paste stays on the pad and don't go
down the via. It's also used with BGAs in a (somewhat expensive) process
called 'pads on via'
IIRC there is nothing in the drc which block 'colliding' components (we
don't either have courtyard information to do that) so it should work
