Well, you can, but it will sound unbalenced. Say if you use a bridge pickups in the middle, you will notice no difference between the bridge and middle pickups. The middle section is designed for a middle pickup, brdige for bridge, etc., etc. Just my two cents.
Gear:

Guitars
Martin DSR
Taylor 214e
Fender Strat
Epiphone 335 Dot
Carlo Robelli Acoustic

Amps+Effects
1978 Fender Pro Reverb
Boss Blues Driver
Boss Super Overdrive
EHX Holy Grail
Boss DD-20 Giga Delay

Yeah, I wouldn't do that I don't think. It would sound unbalanced, as said above, and it wouldn't really be worth doing.

Usually the middle pickups is wired out of phase so that when used with bridge or neck pickups would get rid of hum. Almost like a humbucker.

they're wired reverse polarity. not so out of phase.

and humbuckers wired in series, but strat pickups are in parallel without a switch.
