Relieving fuel pressure

My guess would be that since it is still trying to spark as well, that it might begin to "catch", but not run.

I would associate the cylinder washing thing more for if you don't have spark but are spraying fuel.  I wouldn't think it would wash the walls down anymore than if it was running.

An oil change afterward would be a good idea if you suspect injected fuel isn't getting burned.  (Not that it would do anything for the damage done to the sealing surfaces or catalytic convertor.)
