I have a couple 4m Hyper e-AVAs that I'd love to give it a try with someday. I know they're not the ideal XC ship, but it would still be interesting to give it a shot.

There is no reason this couldn't be done, but it won't happen until there is precedent and enough interest by a variety of persons to make it happen. The Nats events won't happen based on an unproven concept. I would suggest you put an event together, test the concept, refine as needed, then propose the event to LSF Nats management. Considering that ALES is only now becoming recognized as a legitimate event, it will take some considerable effort to make electric XC possible.
