I ran the cables down the down tube just like that. The only problem with that run is the cables drag along the seat tube as the suspension cycles. It doesn't take long for it to start eating through the paint. I ended up putting about a 4" strip of clear motocross paint protection film up each side to resist wear.
This is Lars' fun freeride bike (med frame). He has an F5 for dh racing, xcl for 4x and dj. What can we say - we like to spoil Lars? He's sponsored by RS so he runs a Monarch (it's a really nice shock).
