I get the point, but would counter that it's important to be aware that you've ended up in the middle of the measure. Musically speaking switching to 2/4 doesn't mean you get to ignore the unit equivalent to the 4/4 measure (which is now a pair of measures), but practically speaking the temptation to do so might increase.
I have fun dancing Foxtrot to some of my WCS blues and contemporary numbers. I just published an iMix with a few of them. Tempos may not be correct, but I take them into Audacity and adjust them before I burn to CD or add to my iPod.
I think it's fun to dance to different types of music, but traditionalists (my teacher included) may cringe at the thought, particularly with something like hip hop. It's not the tempo they don't like. They'll tell you it doesn't fit the character of the dance.
