I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work. I say give it a try!

Make sure you do a quick blind transfer so that the incoming fax doesn't hear things like music on hold or other tones that could potentially confuse it.

That said, is there any reason you wouldn't just have a 2nd DID and point it direct to the ATA extension that has the fax machine?

I didn't have enough DID's to use one for ip phone and another to FAX.
