That's one thing I'm going to be investigating today. My gut feeling is that it will work.

I don't think it would be possible to attach a HD to a floppy port directly, although you could attach one via a Gotek drive.

As a second drive for games that support disk 2 in DF1, probably very useful though. It was sweet having a second drive back in the day.
It's not just about games. Still, I would be interested in seeing a list of those games if anyone has compiled one. Perhaps this issue has been blown a little out of proportion.
