Is it, or is it not, a good idea to put electric guitar strings on a steel string acoustic? I will be useing nickel wound .009's.

I believe Acoustic steel strings are higher tension than electric so they could feel kinda loose and sloppy. But, maybe you might like it loose and sloppy;) Seriously though, if it's a guitar you want to experiment on and you like the way they feel and sound, go for it. I would just be cautious when putting higher tension strings on an instrument that may not be able to take it. It sounds like this is not the case here though.
