Pre-emptive strike

On the subject of about party switching, what if after the Republicans win control of the Senate 50-50 they get Zell Miller to switch pre-emptively? It doesn't look cheap and sleazy if his switch doesn't change the control of the Senate. But by moving the bar it makes it that much harder from the Democrats to switch it back and the Democrats would look extra cheap and sleazy even if they managed it. It would be much better than a double switch (Chafee switches and then Miller does in response). Given the Republican tide in GA, it's not completely implausible.
