Can you use an oversized diopter on an anamorphic lens such as say a 130mm diopter on a 75mm lens if you can figure out a way to set it in the matte-box or will that cause problems?

These are diopters in a holder that takes up two slots of a 6.6"x6.6" matte box.

Someone should adapt this idea, and make a holder that would sandwich around 138mm filters so you could put your own filters in there.
