1.4X TC on a 55-250 STM lens, anyone?

First, is this even possible.  Secondly, with what sort of results?  I would not have even asked such a thing if I felt the natural range of this lens was suspect.  But it's actually quite good.  Hence the question.  77mm-350mm (with the 1.4X TC) would make a rather interesting "poor-man's" wildlife lens.  But only if the IQ didn't suffer much.
