Actually when I read your link, didn't find anything in it that suggested you couldn't do exactly that

No, because as you stated:

the defined benefit plan cannot address a single employee as their audience because defined benefit plans must treat the entire pension portfolio as a whole. Therefore what is prudent must be constrained to the subset of investments that would be prudent for all the beneficiaries of the plan. This would seem to place a serious constraint on defined-benefit plans

and as you further state:

a lot of pension trust documents have very explicit language as to the responsibilities of the board and the types of investments that should be held. That could certainly create problems with trying to apply a simple, hands-off investment strategy.
