Old Derailleur Hangers and Modern Derailleurs

I'm curious whether or not an old shimano derailleur hanger--the style not frame or brand specific, can be screwed to a modern derailleur, such as a Tiagra or Sora--or even a MTB Acera or Alivio?

Anyone tried this before?

I just put a 2007 Tiagra Rear Der onto a 1984 dawes frame, you just have to watch out for Campy and a different threading, and if it doesnt want to go in, don't force it.
