Besides, the chapeau-de-fer (which is what I think you're describing) 
looks really cool.  I'd considered making or commissioning someone to 
build me one for melees, with solid back and sides hidden by mail as if I 
wore a coif under it.  Would I take more shots because of the brim?  
Sure.  Would it look cool and unusual?  I think so. :)

P.S.-- I'm also toying around with one of those nifty flat-topped pot 
helms with the pierced faceplates that showed up in the 12th C.  Again, 
the solid back and side would be hidden by mail.  Has anyone does this
