Nope, you are not crazy, this is entirely doable... You just need to
make sure your routing gets handled properly at both ends...
(On a system, when I would plug into the wired network, but leave my
wireless up, I would send my wireless traffic out the wired interface,
because of the new default route, and receive the responses via
wireless. Just a modified version of what you talk about.)
