Yes. The only problem would be to remove the worklist once the device has uploaded its acquisition to Orthanc (which will necessitate a custom "OnChange" callback watching DICOM files entering Orthanc), or if GNUmed invalidates some worklist.
However, I currently have no time to work on this extension of the ModalityWorklists plugin.
