Seems like the process would have to be slightly more precise to avoid having a bump or divot at the weld, since the diamond is more continuous and less textured than saw teeth.

But I wonder if there's somewhere that would sell a bunch of 1/4" diamond coil stock, and then you could take it to your local bandsaw guys and have them weld it for you.

I would be inclined to try to remember that the goal here is to make glass with the limited time we have. It's easy to go off on tangents.
