While this is quite possible, it has large impact on the CPU, and of course it doesn't use a decent spatial index, which could speed queries up quite a bit.
Having all the specific features such as length() distance() etc. would really be beneficial for some more advanced applications.
But then again, who would use mysql for advanced applications?
