I don't think there's anything to actually prevent you from doing it, but it would be a very BAD idea.  Anything that might interfere with the dcpromo process, however unlikely, should be avoided at all costs.

You can, but I wouldn't suggest it.  Technically there shouldn't be any issues... but then again, technically computers don't make mistakes... yet we know they do.
