This comment on hubstripping.com might make you want to try, but you'd want to be very sure you could get the whole thing back together:

Do you know if it is possible to completely disable the coaster brake on a Nexus 7 hub, and if so, how?

@Peter: Yes, itís possibile to disable the coaster brake. I had a Nexus 7 and did it without any hint. You have to remove the left cup (that with the brake arm) and carefully extract the brake drum. It consists in two metal half rings, covered with grease (donít remove it).
It worked nice for me.
