You could do that, but how would you deal with the extra drywall thickness at the edge of the tub surround? I would just use a mudcap at the tile perimeter. You don't need MR drywall, regular drywall is fine. Yes, vapor barrier is required between the drywall and the CBU.
Or you could skip the drywall and mut the vapor barrier on the studs and install the CBU flush with your walls.
