Yeh, I've used it to some success. I wired two tones with two different cap values to two pups so the tones were interactive and worked with both pups. The result was I could use either cap value or blend both caps values with either or both pups.
Obviously it's going to give you more tone shaping - at extremes you could use one pup on the brightest tone setting and the other pup on the darkest tone setting. How would you do that with a singel tone pot?
Will the added tone shaping be of any use to you. The only way to find that out is for you to do them both yourself.
Personally, I would install the stock setup and play it for a while before I even thought about these changes you're considering.
