Sounds very like what the first age (I think) Dara Happans did in the Karsdenic Clarifications, actually. "Thus he become more of a sun, and less of a god", to paraphrase.

Perhaps contra Greg, I don't think Aether is what you get from this process; Ae. is a "higher", or more general power than specifically "sun-ness", being more like "primal fire/sky".
