You'd also need to change their location in the wiring chain. Basically instead of being after the switch they would be wired before the switch. Each pickup would go to the volume pot and then to the switch.
There may be a problem in that if a linear pot was used for the tone, it might sound weird when used as a volume control, you would have to swap it for a logarithmic 'audio taper' pot.
