Many so-called cutters are run this way.. The only thing is tacking a Genoa around and past the inner stay can be problematic. In many cases I believe the Genoa is partially furled to avoid some of the drag and hassle of getting the full sail through the foretriangle.

However with some forethought and careful sail selection it can mean you have a decent light-to-moderate sail on the head stay and a good heavy air jib/staysail on the inner. Balanced up with a reefer main the various combos can work well.
