In those pics it looks like there's plenty of metal to drill holes of appropriate size and spacing. In fact, it seems you could bolt these dropouts onto the dropouts of almost any bike.
I think maybe BF doesn't endorse it because the width wouldn't be correct if the modular dropouts were bolted to the regular dropouts. In other words the special dropout holes seem to be offset laterally so the boltons are 135mm apart when bolted on. But surely there are plenty of ways to solve this like adding spacers if the boltons are too wide or just squeezing the hub in if the boltons are too narrow, right?
