I've tried that on a 9sp shifter + 8sp cassette.
It worked and shifted perfectly.
However, the set-up was a bit tricky.
Since, there is no cable-groove cut on the RD for the
alternate position it took me a couple of tries to get the
cable onto the perfect position.
Tip: Once you nail down the cable position,
mark the spot and cut a groove with a
file or a hacksaw to take the hassle
out of future cable changes.
