Sounds like a great idea. In theory it 'should' work... however, with fermenting what works for one person may not for the next. Every ferment is unique, and every environment also so.
If it was me trying this, I would probably separate a Kombucha Mother into two parts (they don't mind being cut with scissors or just ripped apart if you are feeling strong) brew one part the normal way, and then experiment with the other half. That way if the new method gives horrid results then I would still have a back up.
Do let us know how it goes. It maybe that after a few tries with this new method, your SCOBY will have adapted and become even more awesome than a normal Kombucha brew.
