Switched, of course.
Is this a good idea at all?
Not shooting for a particular sound, I just want it to do something else, if that makes sense. I'm probably going to do a Duncan '59 in the neck and the Invader in the bridge. I would split the '59, but the vintage style wire is 2 conductor. So I may split the Invader. Unless they make a 4 conductor version of the '59 that I haven't seen.

If you can do it, try it. If you do it correctly with a switch then having it in humbucking mode is absolutely no difference in sound to there not being a switch.

I was concerned with what it would sound like, so thanks. And the coil split would be on a separate switch or a push/pull knob. 4 conductor '59 it is, then.
