I can't speak to your question about the new generation of cables, but you should try it and let us know.

Seriously though, I recently installed V-brakes with Travel Agents and previous generation STI levers and I'm loving it. I can't see why anyone who is using their CX bike exclusively for non-racing purposes doesn't do this. Yes, I have put in the time and effort to learn how to setup a canti, but with the V-brake, it was just easy and with no effort gave me great braking.

Of course, the worry with the new generation levers is that if they don't quite work without a Travel Agent, they might not quite work with a Travel Agent either, since their cable pull is different.
