I think a better move is to use 3 brakes. use the drop levers, either hydro or mechanical, and then have a small Paul lever on the top for a second front brake. That way you have redundancy in your braking, more heat distribution, you can run hydro, you have two levels for the levers, probably weighs about the same if you do something simple like run the lever on the top to either your front disk or a pederson self energizing canti front only. You have the one lever that maters on the top, and have a brake instead of the other lever.
