You might want to look in to the time duration. If it takes, say, 100,000 years that might exceed practical limits.So objects can control their satellites orbital distance with spin, interesting...

Does orbital inertia have anything to do with orbital precession?
According to Newton's Universal Gravitation and Einstein's General Relativity, being in free fall is to first order like being in space free from gravitational influence, so the law of inertia holds to first order when Cartesian coordinates are established about a particular orbital trajectory as the standard of motionlessness.When satellites in orbit take a sharper turn is the inertial effect greater?

So being in orbit doesn't change the law of inertia and different types of orbits are all the same with respect to inertia. In GR, all orbits are time-like geodesics which is what replaces straight-line constant-velocity trajectories when you switch from Special Relativity to General Relativity.
Sure wasn't obvious to me. That's why I read rpenner's posts with great care.. . . . obviously! . . . .
