If you can trust yourself to never turn a frame on its flat you might consider it! The bees often dont attach the comb to either end bars or bottom bars at least in the brood nest and comb is amazingly tender. After a couple of months the comb gets attached more and the comb toughens up with a couple of brood cycles. If you want to be able to cut cells for queen rearing consider stringing the frame with heavy monofilament fishing line instead of wire.
If you are going to take the time to use fishing line, why not just wire them? I do not think it takes that much time, but I guess it depends on how quick you are:scratch:
