The instruction spaces don't overlap as far as I'm aware. If they did the FPEmulator wouldn't work any more and lots of software would break.

The only necessary change to RISC OS that I can think of would be to preserve the VFP registers on task switches.

There is a problem with the endianness of stored double precision numbers differing between the FPA and VFP, so there are potentially linking issues there I think.
