Nice idea, but probably not reliable enough over the long haul. There are systems out there that don't use cone wrenches, and the trend is away from the classic threaded steel axle and cones, but in the meanwhile, the nut and locknut design is time tested and about as bulletproof reliable as you could hope for.
BTW- if you'd like to test your theory, I have some nylon anti-vibration for threads that works like Nylock, and I can send you a sample to experiment with.
