I've often thought about that.  There are in my mind two things 
preventing me.

1) The belt sander will generate an awful amount of heat and possibly 
create warping, blue spots, or oil-cans.

2) If one were to do it, the belt sander bed is to hard to conform to 
irregular surfaces.  You would have to modify the belt sander.  Possibly 
with a bed made from silicone sponge rubber coated with a teflon sheet.

With successfully completing # 2 above you might have a chance.
