Yes, it sounds fine as long as everything goes to plan, but even by accident I can see problems, like if someone doesn't get a dancing partner and ends up continuing to use missiles, despite having intended to melee, or if the bad guys had the lightning bolts and one of the PCs shouldn't have been able to melee (their ranged Combat ability was below the APs they lost), but now are. Nonetheless, I can't say I would object.
