Cutting a compensating horn

Not anything I currently plan on doing, or plan on ever having done, but I'm just curious if a compensating Eb tuba(say, Besson 983) could be cut to F, and remain the great tuba that it is. Has it been done? I saw a compensating CC tuba on the Dillon site, which I assume was cut from BBb. Howabout cutting a BE993 to CC? Would it make as good a CC horn as it does a BBb? Would it be worthwhile? Just some random musings of mine.
