Adapting Schluter linear drain to Durock Custom Shower Pan?

What do you all think? Good idea or bad idea?

They both seemingly very similar in terms of waterproofing method - fleece lined sheet membrane attached with unmodified thinset.

I'm askbecause I'm planning a curb free shower and am using plank size large format tile. I'd like to avoid the drainage facets needed for a point drain.

All that really needs to be figured out is any height difference at the low points. If I provide a section of the pad to Durock they might be able to match the low point height of a Schulter tray since it's custom anyway.

Otherwise I would need to do mud extensions to my Schluter tray and then apply Kerdi. I'm a DIYer but I'm already taking on a lot of new skills with my basement/bathroom renovation.
