To me, it just doesn't make sense to do it.
The tones would be the same for the most part. Where the most change, or difference if you will; would come in playability.
You would get a lot more mileage from experimenting with tunings or even other instruments with different properties. To mix up the string guage would have to be pretty specialized for a single effect or two, taking away a lot of the versatility the guitar gives us.
Hell, I have enough trouble trying to keep the guitar straight as is.
But then again, you never know, someone with a better mind than us regular Joe's might figure out something worth it's oats. I know a lot have tried.
