It's actually not a bad idea! A single POWER or MASTER should be able to power the entire cab and keep all of the modules therein on the same bus. One thing I would suggest, though...on Gargantua, Robert drilled and cut the backplanes on all of the cabs so that all trimmers are accessible without having to pull any modules. It's a smart move; not only does this allow easy adjustments, it also provides ample ventilation for the modules and that should help with overall stability and component stress.

With enough sandpaper and superglue, the world is your oyster. Build the case you wish to see in this world.
All joking aside, I think you should build it. You wouldn't need the external bus connection, as your full case would keep your MASTER/POWER at the maximum recommended power load. With the vertical PCB slats out of the picture, all you'd need to build is a proper-sized box with three horizontal inner walls (probably required to increase rigidity) and a backplate with proper holes drilled. Bus cables are similarly easy to modify; 4x 21-socket cables and 3x double-ended Male-Male cables to connect it all together.
EDIT: After thinking about it for more than two seconds, I think you'd actually need 2x 21-socket cables and 2x 22-socket cables, and cut passthroughs for the ribbon cables in the horizontal-running inner walls. The PCB bus connector and split patch cable style of OEM AEM might be less work, depending on your construction inclinations.
