Helix for acoustic guitar sounds

On the first model of Variax, I think there was a foot pedal that allowed you to switch between your guitar amp and whatever was going to be amplifying your acoustic sounds.  In a Variax+Helix set-up with the Helix outputs being sent to a PA rather than a guitar amp, is it feasible/desirable to have your Variax acoustic sounds being handled by the Helix, possibly with reverbs, delays, choruses etc. added?  I guess to simplify the question, what would an acoustic/electric sound like played through a Helix?

Yes to the more complicated question - in the same way that a Variax + HD500 set-up can route Acoustic models through effects and out to PA while Electric models can be routed to a Guitar Amp by using Left and Right outputs and panning; except that from what I have seen panning is not needed on Helix because the FX Loop Outs can be defined as outputs so you can have stereo to both
