There is a good chance that what you describe will work. I remember that Shimano's 10 s. cassettes were working fine with campagnolo 10s groupsets.
The difference will likely be far less with 11 speed, just because there's so little room for variation. Campy 11 cogs have the same thickness as Shimano 10, but the spacing is further reduced to 3.8mm.
Maybe someone who knows how to use calipers can report the actual cog thickness and spacing. Most reviews from those who test Shimano 11 only mention that the spacing is closer, but don't include any dimensions.
To work really well, the spacing difference should be no more than .1mm, since the error accumulates.

It looks promising, since the width of the total cassette stack is only 0.2mm wider with S11 (vs C11)... as I've been told. Seems very odd that we can't find detailed dimensions, though...
Just measured a 9000 cassette, the total height of the cassette is 39,6mm
So the cassette spacing should be 39,6mm - 1,6mm = 38mm / 10 = 3,8mm
Shimano 10-speed is 3,95, so a difference of 0,15mm per gear. Will not work very well.
But the difference between Campagnolo 11-speed (3,85mm) and Shimano 11-speed is just 0,05mm per gear, so that should work ok.
You'll get more accurate results measuring the individual parts, or a riveted together group, rather than a whole cassette.
If Shimano 11 spacing is 3.8mm, then the match should be as perfect as possible, with Campy.

I have used a campy 11 speed wheel in my 9000. shifting is 95% of the shimano setup.
