Delta DeLuca with handle mounted front?

Would this faucet work with the handle in front? According to Delta it can be done. My concern is whether it is too big and will get in the way of stock pots or cookie sheets. The faucet swings so the wet hand problem can be avoided.
Plumber needs to come back anyhow to fix something.
I do remember that we may have to switch hot/cold lines

My GC will be so annoyed.

Personally, that's not one I would choose, since that's a pretty big handle assembly. Remember that when it's in front and on, it's going to be pulled out towards you. I think something like the trinsic works much better for a front handle installation, but here's the deluca pic so others can know which you mean:

I have this faucet, and yes, if front-mounted the handle would get in the way of large items, and I think it would get dirtier more quickly.

You are both right. Idea Discarded.
