Volvo Seal for Rudder Post ?

Not sure where best to post this query but here goes: After reading the praises of the Volvo shaft seals as an alternative to traditional stuffing boxes on the prop shaft, I wondered if they could be used in place of a traditional stuffing box on a rudder post seal? Pros, cons?
