Believe it or not, the National Fuel Gas Code (NFPA 54) seems to include a specific prohibition against this, so someone must have tried it before:

3.3.5. Prohibited Locations. Gas piping inside any building shall not be
installed in or through a circulating air duct, clothes chute, chimney or
gas vent, ventilating duct, dumbwaiter, or elevator shaft. This provision
shall not apply to ducts used to provide combustion and ventiliation air
in accordance with Section 5.3 or to above-ceiling spaces are covered in 3.3.4.
