Sideways nozzle block heater?

Sooooo I was wondering if there was any reason that the print head & heater could not be mounted "sideways"?

I know that the wind barrier would have to be re-designed to allow for this.

BUT since I like to be able to see up close as it is printing, and so do the people who visit, I'd like to turn the heater block side ways and then cut back on the shroud so you can actually see in close.

We design lighting, so I was also considering mounting some LEDS down there so there is some good light.
