Yup, this is pretty much what Andy & Ben from Rubberductions showed  
at one of the Skillswaps using Plone.  We do similar things in which  
we sometimes have client inputting content into a out-of-the-box  
version of Plone whilst we build their site, we can then just migrate  
the content over when ready.  Works well when you have multiple bits  
of a project being done in parallel.
