I'm going to do a version of this and drop a loose cog.

Obviously I cannot modify the space betwen the 3 and 2 cog clusters, but I can change the space between the two clusters and then between all the other cogs.
The tiny difference in the two clusters will not be a problem.

bit pointless for the rest of us, surely?
Not if you want to use a 10 speed wheel?

Crazy like a FOX!
Just watch out for the chain clearance as you mentioned....and of course the derailleur when you shift to the last cog on the cassette. Let us know what happens.

i suspect same brand chain as the cassette would be ideal, but in a race situation, if a spectator hands over a wheel of the other brand, you shouldnt hesitate.
