It would work, physically. You'd probably tie them into the reverse-light circuit. But the reason they didn't put the reverse lights there to begin with was because of longevity and performance issues due to the exhaust heat, and carbon buildup from the tips. I don't know how long those would or wouldn't last if you put them there...
Remember, GM has to engineer a car to last a long time, whereas we can do whatever the heck we want to it.
