Pros, cons, feasible? 
I live with fear and danger everyday, but sometimes I leave her at home and go motorcycling.

Russel Parker helped me straighten out pair of Yamaha 34mm forks a few years ago (see Complete Rebuilds - XS650 Bobber Flat Tracker).  Pretty easy with the right tools.

I hear tell that many of the modern bikes with large diameter fork tubes are actually very thin walled, and straightening them is difficult or impossible.
