Could Heath Ledger Cameo in 'The Dark Knight Rises'?

Get ready for one of the more absurd rumors you'll read all week. According to Comic Book Movie – who've been shoveling out some doozies this past month – Christopher Nolan is entertaining the idea of giving a cameo to Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight Rises. Since Legder unfortunately passed on prior to The Dark Knight hitting theaters, in order to do this they'd have to either use old never-before-used footage from The Dark Knight and/or some sort of CGI wizardry, similar to what The Sopranos did with Tony's mother Livia after that actress had passed away. Heath Ledger

Here's what their "movie insider" had to say: "The idea is to use these fragments of cut scenes and use CGI to have The Joker appear one last time. Chris wants some continuity between movies and for the franchise to pay tribute to Heath and his portrayal of the Joker. It would only be a fleeting moment in the movie and would only be included with the full consent of Heath's family." 
Now, the truth is that Nolan has made it clear from the beginning that he wouldn't replace Ledger as Joker in the third film or do anything to taint his image. There's no doubt some beyond-the-grave CG trickery would cause a ton of discussion, but it'd kinda be in poor taste especially since you don't HAVE to include him. That said, The Dark Knight did feature a brief scene between Batman and Scarecrow as a way to bridge the first and second films, so including a snippet of Ledger would do that for the second and third films as well.
Way too tacky or a good idea. What do you think?
