Marketable....maybe...... doable.......doubtful...... 
I have attempted hybridization of amorphophallus 9 times at this point...... It has never worked..... As I have said before..... probably the only shot of ANY kind of hybrid.... are "like" amorphs (ex. koratensis x opertus, paeoniifolius x prainii, etc.....)

I have attempted those "long stretch" crosses (konjac x paeoniifolius, etc.... and they just dont seem to work).  Everyone must understand that IF these plants hybridized easily.... you would see a slew of them from aroid aficianados..... notice how you dont see them very often....... thats because you can "throw a little extra pollen on something"..... but what you will most likely get will be an "infloresence with some pollen on it"....nothing more...

Don't neglect to propagate the pure species, but why not throw the extra on
a waiting konjac, or paeonifolius, albispathus, gigas, or Typhonium? Two
words for you (despite Wilbert's objections) -  extremely marketable.
