I think you should just go for it, and try it . A great philosopher once said "...you'll never know until you check it out..."
It's your beer after all, and it may wind up being a genius idea. You may even wind up liking the result better than if you used a more traditional choice for the style, or, depending on other factors, it may not make a bit of difference.
Either way, that recipe should make a pretty tasty beer.
I'd do it. If you're not certain, make a five gal batch rather than ten gal.
But based on personal experience with similar questions (albeit different styles), my guess is you'll wish you'd made the ten.
