You might not get as much leavening with the Italian meringue. It might be too stable which could limit how much the air bubbles expand. But I don't see why it wouldn't work, theoretically. It also sounds like more work, making a simple syrup then whipping it into the egg whites. Only way to find out is to try. Let us know how it worked or not :)
