Moon Board School holds on a 27 degree wall?

Hi.
I have a 16' wide, 13' high home wall at about 27 degrees of overhang.
Since we always end up re-setting the wall once around every two months, I was considering purchasing a set of Moon Climbing's School holds.
Now, these holds (and the Moon Board problems) are designed to be used with a 40 degree wall (which this one is not, by about 13 degrees). But since every other aspect of the wall is almost entirely to the Moon Board's spec (number of bolt holes, spacing, kickboard, everything), I'm wondering if the School holds and the Moon Board problems would "work" at that much less steepness.
For instance, would a V12 Moon Board problem feel like a V8-9? Would the problems still be enjoyable? Has anyone done something like this?
My goal is to have a resource of problems set by other climbers (especially world renowned ones!) of various grades without having to pester my friends to come over and set for my weaknesses (or waste my time setting stuff that just plays to my strengths, which is what my problems always end up being).

To be clear, i know the holds would "work" per se, as holds are holds, but i'm wondering if the 13 degrees of difference would make the pre-set problems way too soft (ie, a V12 is now a V4) or too awkward (ie, the 40 degree angle is too integral to the movement for a good problem to make sense on a 27).

Hoping someone somewhere has done the same thing with good results!
