MGO1 on CFW PS3 by changing ELF filenames?

an idea I just had, would it be possible to mod the MGS3 disc2 ISO to rename MGS3_N.ELF to something else (MGS3_NEW.ELF for example), then add PS2rd.ELF to the MGS3 ISO and change that filename to MGS3_N.ELF, then have PS2rd.ELF lookup the new ELF filename (MGS3_NEW.ELF for example) instead of MGS3_N.ELF? thus being able to run the cheats\patches using only the MGS3 ISO?

I know you'd still need a backwards compatible (and CFW) PS3, but it seems the big hurdle for everyone who owns one is actually applying the cheats

unless the MGS3 online mode ELF is required to have the filename MGS3_N.ELF, or there is some sort of checksum or restriction to adding new files to the ISO, I don't see why this wouldn't work. then at least a few more people who own a BC PS3 but not a PS2 can play MGO1

thoughts?
