In this particular case it would be for single threaded targets, so I believe it wouldn't represent a problem.

But all these restrictions that one needs to be aware of when building with the RTEMS toolchain make me think it can lead to programmer error.

So I guess ultimately it's not the best idea, although it would be very convenient.
