Sounds OK to me, other than the extra weight and being able to bend it like you said . . .
You might check around to make sure you can get acces to a mandrell bender that can handle your material --- I tried to get a couple local shops to bend some .120" mild steel tubing and they all were afraid they would damage their bender trying.
