Not normal practice but probably do-able with proper training. Remember that the new pilot will have an extended apprenticeship with experienced captains and, in any event, wide-bodies tend to be flown more conservatively than the smaller jets. My main concern would be lack of hands-on handling in the long-haul environment. Not ideal but in a world short of pilots this may become more common.
