The problem is that they'll find it hard to move the AO. It currently takes place during the summer holidays in Australia which allows the organisers to generate record amounts of revenue from ticket sales. If the children go back to school before the AO starts, they'd have some trouble, unless they can somehow generate additional revenue from the TV networks.
But they don't even need to move AO. Right now it's, what, 5 weeks between Melbourne and Indian Wells?
Put Bangkok immediately after AO, Tokyo next, then Shanghai Masters. This way it would be 2 weeks between first GS and first Masters of the season and 2 weeks separating Shanghai and IW.
