I know I should just try it, but am curious if any others are using A standard tuning which would be ADGC (plus F on a 5 string). I already tune to BEAD and tend to play down low on all types of music and almost never use the D string. I could drop down another full step or could even shift the strings over and tune to F#, B, E, A. I almost like that option better but it would be hard to find a suitable F# string. For A standard I could just drop down a step with my current LaBella 1954 flats which have plenty of tension. I'm thinking that the only downside for me would be having to learn the fretboard again.
