I've been reading up, so have seen this mentioned. The comments I saw were:
1- You could have the harness run over a round tube and go down to a lower anchorage point. This would make the point where it ran over the round tube the 'effective mounting point' for IVA purposes, so would have to be at the minimum height/sufficient strong (same applies if the belts make contact with the seat when done up).

2 - Top harnesses that were just wrapped (not bolted) onto the cross bar, with no other fixing, might be problematic because they could easily slide side-to-side (either when loose, or in a crash). Couldn't find reference of anyone actually taking this setup to IVA...
