I was pondering on alternative ways to lace a mountainbike wheel, when I suddenly had an idea.
Has anyone ever laced front (disc) wheels with leading spokes cross3, and trailing spokes cross1, and rear wheel vice versa or mixed (disc/driveside)?

The general idea here is that the front wheel only transmits torque one direction, and needs some pretty tangial spokes for that purpose, while the spokes in the other direction can improve lateral stiffness through a larger spoke-angle.
