It can be done.
I doubt it is worth the money.
And the tiny wheel (which would limit rolling speed and your ability to ride obstacles) would probably be evenly offset by the longer fork. However that longer fork would have more negative travel, be more saggy and generally not great for trails. I guess it depends on your own use. But my trails (dh or otherwise) are to technical for *me* to ride small front wheels.
That said, 24" wheel is stronger. So I guess if this was a pure hucking street bike, why not. It might work. I knew a short dhiller who did this. But he ran dual 24's. It suited the bike, his riding and his size.
