I can't see any obvious problems, so long as you can get the bar ends tight enough without crimping your handle bars.
Remember this rule of thumb: "Anything on your bike that fails in front of the bottom bracket will probably result in dental work and plastic surgery."
So if your bars, stem, forks, etc., blow up, they are taking you with them.
