: I do not agree that codes are "over engineered" for "worst case scenarios". Rather they tend to provide MINIMUM safe and healthy and operational requirements.

In your specific case, the sink would drain very slowly due to the length of the run to the trap. The sink water would also frequently back up into the shower drain. This is a simple matter of physics, the height of the sink, etc.
