Yea, do it!
Take your time, but do it!
ha! might be 'fools rush in where angels fear to tread' but am keen to try it.
the frame is fillet brazed so mostly worried about possibly fucking up existing joins-think clamping on some kind of heat-sink to the drop out/seat stay where the disc mount will be brazed on is necessary or recommended?
Assuming the frame is brazed using brass, your silver solder has a much lower melting point, so I wouldn't worry too much about damaging the fillets.
It wouldn't hurt to order a second disk mount or just a price of steel plate and practice soldering it to something other than a bicycle frame. Just to get an idea of the type of heat you need to focus into the mount rather than the thin tube.
Just don't get anything yellow hot and your brass frame joints won't be affected. Silver will flow with just a dull red glow on the steel
