It could be done, but you would be at a significant disadvantage, I would think.

I learned that its like jumping a quad with bad shocks. You can do it easily. You just have to learn to land right to keep from bottoming. Nothing sucks worse that being lined up for the next one and bouncing when you land and completely screwing everything up. MX set-ups soak up the landing where XC types are like a pogo stick. If you can learn to MX with the WR suspension you'll be a fast SOB if you ever get an MX bike.
You obviously don't know anything about suspension. You can tune the stock suspension alot. For one to help with harder landings, you can add the spring-rate washers to the forks (don't help much but a little), increase the rear spring preload, Increase high speed compression in the rear, Increase normal compression, and rebound damping front and rear. And add oil to the forks, not too much but a little so you don't lose too much travel.
As for the pogo stick BS you mentioined, that is what rebound damping is for. Depending on your track conditions, you will need more or less, but without a doubt alot more for MX than XC.
Obviously if you tune the YZF suspension it will be more effective on the MX track for which it was designed, but you can tune your WR suspension to compete fairly well.
