L Bracket + Panohead?!

Hey guys - i have a problem!

My system:

Gitzo GT2542T + Arca P0 with classic clamp, Sony a65

I want a Panohead, i have choosen a german one - i saw it at a friend and it looks very good for the price. Like most panoheads the arca clamp is in view direction of the lens. It would fit at the moment - i just use a normal arca unit and can turn it around.

But if i buy a l-bracket its 90° to the direction i need it for the panohead. So i have to change between normal arca unit and l-bracket.

My idea:

I put a sirui arca clamp on the arca plate of the panohead but in 90° to the one "under that". then i can put the L-Bracket with camera into this clamp.

Will that work? or is it too tipsy? So my setup would look like that:

Tripod -> arca p0 -> Panohead with arca clamp -> plate -> arca clamp -> l-bracket -> camera


this is the panohead ( dont need a rotator - have it in the p0)
