I can see how that will require more oil quantity, but how is it going to get there in the same size line? Or do you ream out the line somehow?The head will likely require an external line. Nothing really wrong with this idea as long as vibration is taken into account during the design.
Piston squirters might be done with nothing more than a couple of aimed drillings in the rod big end. The oil holes in the crank can be slotted for more oil as needed. It's common on VWs to grove the crank journal 360 deg for full time oil to the rods. Same kind of idea here.
