I think its a poor design. I doubt the Perf will be any better since its just a rebadged minoura.
You could possibly run a steering tube extender, then mount a long second stem and cut-down flat bar a few inches above your drop bar. It would be heavy, look very odd and possibly interfere with normal bar, but would certainly hold up to most anything you could choose to mount.
