I have no argument against your idea. I'm sure that the person you have in mind is a great player and a quick study, and I'm sure that you will obtain a really good Eb instrument if you decide to follow through with your idea.
Yes, I have played in bands set up like this before, and it CAN add a bit of "punch" and "focus". I'm sure that the really old band arrangements which have some octave stuff were written that way with this in mind.
Where is your band located? What type of repertoire do you enjoy programming?
