Doesnt sound too bad an idea as long as it doesn't get too hot (try not to fit the mirror too close). Also i would recommend you use a 6mm thick mirror. It might be worth getting an off cut of mirror and just plonk behind and see if it it is going to work without it cracking, but i think it should be fine.
