firing mid range glaze at cone 04

Is it ok to mix mid-fire and low fire glazes on the same piece and fire at cone 04? What happens with the cone 6 glaze when it is fired at cone 04 temps? Thanks

My first pottery teacher's answer was "you can't"  when I pushed further she said "it won't work".  When I pushed even further she said "try it!"  I did. 

She and @neilestrick were right.  It doesn't work, but don't let us stop you trying! 

And if you're tempted to try the other way, ^04 glaze in a ^6 firing, be sure to use a large cookie/catcher under your pot to catch the over-melted glaze and slumped clay.
