these types of edits have been done in the past. they can be very
effective, but
they have also gone awry at times; one such edit in the western half of
the US
introduced a noticeable number of errors that weren't caught until a bit
later.

so it's a reasonable thing to do, but make sure that you have a quality
control
plan in place and make sure you execute it.
