I do have an old Wilson Hammer that I might do this to but I'm probably a month away from stringing it
I wouldn't think so if you keep the tension reasonable, but don't blame me if you crack your frame, it's just an opinion. I plan on testing the hypothesis when I get a chance. On someone else's tip, I have skipped crosses on rackets before, to soften the string bed but it was one or two crosses, not four or six, and I haven't experimented with the mains. I have even a wood racket where I skipped a cross and it is fine thank you, no warping.
