Subject: [CR]Mafac two cable brake lever question

I am wondering if anyone can tell me if a Mafac twin cable tandem brake lever would work if it were placed on the top of the handlebars.Like a cyclocross lever.Would it be able to work on the flat section of bar or do they need to be on the bends like other levers.Thinking about setting up a single speed bike with canti's front and rear with one lever and considering that there would be a good place for it.Sorry if this question is a bit clunky but hoping for an answer, Geoff Duke Melbourne Australia
