Lightening up a dahon

Are there carbon front forks made for Dahon's? or is it possible to swap a fork from a lighter bike that has a similar frame?

People with the right skills and tools have been known to 'cut down to length' carbon forks from bigger bikes for this purpose but I don't know of 'dedicated' 20" carbon forks besides $$$ recumbent suspension forks and specialist BMX racing ones, that seem not to be rated for the rigours of day-to-day riding or adult weight tolerances.
