26" wheels on a 650B frame?

My oldest kid, needs a new bike, I'd like to get him a decent used bike for the same money as an entry-mid level hard tail. The problem is, he's currently sizing up as a small frame on most bikes. Given that he's currently growing like a weed, I was wondering how stupid it would be to put 26" wheels on a 650b Medium framed bike and perhaps go with a shorter stem and/or inline post.

There are loads of 650bs around in medium, but very few small and xsmall framed bikes.
