I can almost guarentee it won't work.  For one thing getting a SACK
response to a SYN+DATA packet will explode quite nicely for one thing.

A lot of the other retransmit queue handling would need to be audited
as well.  So much code assumes that if we see sent data in the
retransmit queue, there won't be SYN or SYN+ACK things in there to
contend with.
