Modifying Softec HCS12 Starter kit

Is there any reason that the $99 Softec HCS12 Starter kit could not be modified to work as an in circuit programmer?

Seems like you could just cut the Reset and BKGD traces to the onboard 9S12C32, and connect them to the target.

This question was asked by someone else on the Softec forum, but Softec's answer was to just buy one of their programming tools.

If this could be done, would it be necessary for the oscillator to run at 16MHz?

Also, where to get the "standard" 6 pin programming socket?
