Aside from the difficulty of halving the 3 eggs for the crepe batter, I cannot see any reasons against it.
The stack of crepes will, however, be a little low (only 5 crepes) and might not look very cake-like – unless you use a smaller skillet: 3-4 inches should produce the same height as in the original recipe.

yes, you could halve it but lem's comment is a good one. You could solve the height issue by cutting smaller rounds out of each crepe w/ a cookie cutter (placed shoulder to shoulder) and stacking them as in the recipe, but with more layers.

Just fyi, both crepes and mousse freeze very well when well wrapped.
