It was tried before (although I forget precisely where) and it was found that PC gamers would constantly wipe the floor with console gamers thanks to the superior interface.
Actually, I don't know if any of you have played Tom Clancy's Endwar or R.U.S.E. on a console, but they actually ended up being quite fluid for a console RTS. Of course they had a very streamlined interface (Endwar had voice recognition that actually worked, whereas RUSE has every building and unit construction order mapped to a button), but it worked quite well with the limited real estate available on a 360 controller.
