I've seen esposed cable runs along the sides of curved top tubes before. You could do a 12" or so run along the side of the top tube with clamp-on cable stops.
I think I'd just run full housing, myself, though. I think you'd have to drop about $30 on cable stops and they ain't too pretty.
edit: one thing I didn't think about is that on the curved TT bikes with cablestops up there, the stops are brazed on so that the cable run is a straight line. If you use clamp on stops, the ferrules will be aligned on two different tangents, which would not be the ideal orientation.
