Yes! -- the umbrella should be considerably more reflective (and will be closer to the flash head) than flat white painted walls and ceilings, and the preflash should be more than enough to allow the camera to meter.
Hmm in normal bounce (ceiling/wall) situation, I have the front-facing preflash hitting the subject .
But in this situation, I have the weak back-facing preflash hitting the umbrella first then the subject.

Although it is all theory, the result seems quite obvious.

I believe at the end of the day I have to meter the flash manually (not a huge deal) instead of through ptll.

You'll be able to tell us the truth of it when it arrives and you've used it! I will just wait till that day arrives and then know for a fact how well it works!
