Agreed,, the air flow would backup,,,

Put the two Stock Clear fans at the front sucking in,, buy and place you coloured fans as Exhaust at the back,, one coloured on the side,, and away ya go,,

visually,, you will be able to see all the lit up fans,, the stock fans will be hidden,, and your Box will look SHARP!!

Nice case,, looking to get one too,, now i see the potential,,

I actually prefer LED's to cathodes; they require less power and are really bright for their size - although it works best if they are behind something, so the part it's hidden behind seems to glow (that really looks good), and so you don't blind yourself (as I said, LED's are bright)
