I thought about this "V" idea way back in about '89 when I was talking to a fleet test driver for VW and the cars they were testing had a similar engine.

I'm going to guess that Honda has already considered it as well and ended up not using it for some reason. Maybe as simple as GW's are recognized for their "flat" configuration.
