Yeah, I've seen it and done it.  Again, yeah, make sure you're in the right class with the slick front. 

Sometimes, some development will come from slicks before DOT's, and the other way around too.  Just depends upon the development cycle.

Jensen was running a hand cut knobby on the rear and an old scooter tire on the front.
He also had one hand tied behind his back and was wearing his left boot backward to accommodate the super-duper-uber GP sidesways shift pattern.

Super secret stuff, don't tell anyone I told y'all.

I prefer a loose bike and ran that setup once by mistake without knowing it... dropped 2 seconds and ran that until I got rid of the bike.  I'd say if it works, go with it.
