Routing Console buttons (reset / pause) to controller port

I use a 6 button genesis controller, with an inline adapter to make it work with multi buttons, for 7800 games. I find it a bit tedious to have to push the buttons on the console itself to reset the game or what not. What if i routed those console buttons to the controller port so start could be pause and one of the extra buttons could also be used to reset.

 

There might be some pull up / pull down / signal inversion issues, but should be doable inside the console without much headache. Stupid idea??? Has this been done before?? concerns?

I added a stereo jack to the console. I then took a nes controller and hooked up a 12 wire cable to it. 2 of the extra wires I hooked to the select and start buttons. On the plug side I hooked up a standard 9 pin plug but jumpered the 2 new wires out the side to plug into the stereo jack, which of course is wired inside the console to the select and reset buttons.

It may be low tech but works sweet.
