The deep frames will probably be full of stores. To save this just lay the frame on the top bars and let the bees rob it out. After it is robbed out, it can easily be cut down with a table saw or the wax salvaged for candles. It is just not a huge obstacle.
I agree with Vance. I've seen it done this way with no problems.
