I do this with drums for probably 90% of rock mixes. Send the drums to a compressor, at really extreme settings, and blend in just a little. It's a really common trick.

There might be phase issues in some technical, abstract sense, but I've never heard them in a way that created a problem. Latency in analog outboard is pretty damn low. (If you're going in and out of DAW to get to the outboard, that's a different story, of course.)
