I rode a 3 day ride 1,150 mi. with 3 other riders last weekend, and one older long time rider on a BMW used a genuine sheepskin part time and as I was getting a good bit of tail pain & some burn, he had me try it for about 1/2 the days ride... The way he said he used it was only about 1/2 the time, and I agree, the change really did seem to make a big difference wheather from the sheepskin to seat, or seat to sheepskin... He had a cord loop on the front that hooked under the front of the seat to keep it from blowing or falling off if you stood up or got off the bike...
I liked the idea and am doing myself one, but from imitation sheepskin (a fluffy car wash mit w/seam removed) as I didn't find genuine sheepskin easily...
Just switching about 1/2 way through the day really made a big difference for me...
Have a good one...Old dog...

You can get them cheaper off Ebay, 14"x14" medium fits our bikes.

Sounds good to me, give it a try!
Although from what I've gathered reading the multitude of seat mod threads here the problem with the seat regarding foam is not that there isn't enough, but that there is too much. I think most people who have rebuilt it have concluded that less and denser foam helped the most. Just going from memory here.
But your deal would let you adjust the hardness... which is genius. I think you should try it!
I have a gel seat thing like that (not adjustable,tho) that someone gave me that I'm going to try putting in mine. I figured i would take off the cover, trace the pad in the foam, cut away a hole for it and give it a try.
You could do the same.

For the Seat
How about putting one of these under the seat cover instead of more Foam?
Should make for a smoother & Softer ride.
