Yes, I have done that in the past.
I hold a hi-yield bond fund - and I have always counted it as 50% equity, 50% fixed in my AA. It roughly looks to be about half as volatile as equity, close enough for me.
It's nice to see that the Hi-Yield funds have outperformed the S&P 500 index, with about half the volatility. I know the party is probably over for Hi-Yield, but I'm having trouble defining an exit point, and what to move it to.
