Direct Bowden hybrid

I have some direct and some Bowden printer setups. I love the Bowden speeds but not so much the filament control.

I was wondering about adding a lightweight, weaker, direct drive to the Bowden setup to better manage retraction and reduce the linear advance, especially for more flexible filaments. I would keep the muscles on the Bowden extruder to do the heavy lifting. Gearing would need to be the same or I would need an extra driver.

Does anyone have thoughts on the viability of this?
