That's a neat idea. There are a few situations where I wish I could disable ABS (I've got one of those slick hills that Dave describes around here--even going 10 MPH it's still terrifying when ABS kicks on because there's no way I'll stop when that happens!).
It should be easy to do. I don't think the ABS would come back on until you cycle the key, though. I had my ABS light come on twice last winter because I think I got enough snow and ice on a wheel sensor to mess with it (a guess, but it hasn't come on since). As soon as I pulled over and cycled the key (both times), it went out and the ABS worked again. That would be very easy to test, just by pulling the fuse and putting it back in while the vehicle is running.
