I did this with my jamis dragon. In my case the frame was meant for 80-100mm of travel and going with the bigger wheel worked similar to a suspension fork. Like others have said it's all a matter of geometry.

Here is a picture of my dragon with a surly cross fork. I ran it as a pit bike for cyclocross and generally played around on it and it handled fine.
