This has been done before at a professional level, but with some differences in the technique. It will work, but it does have its limitations. It's actually a very good idea.

As for multiple wells, I would guess that if they form, they will probably be shallow and will probably dissipate or fade away into the mix in a blink of an eye; that's just my guess.
