We've been doing this on low-FIB platforms (mainly for our Metro, where 
we want to hold a full table in RIB and a few internal routes in RIB) 
since about 2014, and it works - as Scar in "The Lion King" would say - 
rather well.

The only downside is when your IGP and LDP database grows larger than 
the available FIB. But that's another issue; although not an 
insignificant one.
