That's a question for enigma, and most of that question is if they're even willing to do it.

In theory, it's possible to weld on some disc tabs if the seat stays are sturdy enough for it. And if they aren't, then tabs and a SS/CS bridge. But they'd have to also cold set the dropouts for 135mm or you have to be limited to 130mm disc options.

If you wanted TAs, they'd have to cut off the dropouts and weld in new dropouts, which is still possible, because there's huge disc dropouts like Paragon's. It's a rather large undertaking though, and repairs are often expensive relative to the cost of the frame. And you are trying to fix what isn't broken.

The good news for you is that they do repairs and even offer frame alignment and dropout replacement if they're willing to modify and deviate from original spec.

You could fairly easily buy a front fork, right hand shifter and front wheel and just have a front wheel only disk brake bike. The front end is where you need the stopping power anyhow. The looks wouldn't be to everyone's taste, but from an engineering perspective it would be interesting.

I'd love to try this with a four pot DH mountain bike caliper, I wonder if that would work?

Front-only disc works allright in use. It takes some fiddling with the setup to make sure it fits your taste but shouldn't be an issue as long as you don't go wild with brakepads and disc diameter.
