Default pan/genny shovel brake side swap?

I prefer the look of the left side panhead front brake, but I ended up with a generator shovel right side drum brake and fork legs, can I just rotate the whole thing, and have the brake cable in front of the fork leg, or is there some issue with the way the brake cam works that would make it a bad idea?

I know its been done before, but so have rigid forks, I'm wondering if theres a downside (other than the fork drain screw being on the leading edge, and offending purists)
