I've tried it but not successful boot.
I'm using the same method of installing rom without any issue only PA is exception.
As you said I don't use it because I don't like the way need to be done for installed it.
But the whole point is that PA is less friendly than others rom.
Not all users are happy to format data.

I know from my perspective, before booting new rom, I need format data. If not, it can not boot.
But reason is ,my phone is encrypted. I never used decrpyted zips, etc, so dont know in that case.
