No, most people - myself included - would greatly oppose this. You said you'd be breaking the traditions a bit, but that seems major for me. Besides, why do this when, as stated by Astor, you can do so perfectly without having to play as a pre-made character.
Aside from the complete loss of identity the game would undergo, people don't like some characters. For example, I hate Bao-dur, so what if he's selected to be the game main character?
