Although I think is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard of, yes it can. I had one case like this and found that the vinyl siding manufacturer has some very specific rules about how this is done.

I would permit this type of installation only if the ASTM Std. D 3679 recognized this type of installation and the manufacture of the siding did so as well. I would also check to see if there is an ICC research report for this product, and if so follow the recomendations of that report. Most likely this type of installation would also require stripping with 1 x 2's prior to installation of the siding. Now the window and door frames will all have to be extended to provide an edge for the siding to abut.
