Depends on whether you think cold wax can maintain its lubricity inside the rollers of the chain. Seems unlikely outside of summers in death valley or Arizona.
Of course the warmer the wax the more of a dirt magnet it becomes. For cold weather (below ~110F) use I agree with Sheldon Brown, it is a lot of trouble for not much
gain. There are much better lubes around. My feeling is that its lubricity would last hours unless mixed with some lower melting point greases or oils.
