WJCIV! lol good idea. But as dillo was fast to point out already that doing so would make the spacer rotate with the wheel.

Now since your idea is a good one though here's what I propose. Machine the hub and do not bore anything but an 8mm hole in the center if possible. When you cut the bearing seat width you can cut the spacer at the same time. Then when the width is set you can cut the area out between the spacer and the bearing seat shoulder. Presto the exact spacer for each hub.
I don't like aluminum for spacers though. Cutting your own spacers without a lathe, thats the trouble with them. How could one cut them to size
