Hyperborea as Greyhawk's North Pole

Hey folks. I've noticed a few Greyhawk fans are also Hyperborea fans. Has anyone done the work to attempt to place Hyperborea as Oerth's North Pole? Does doing that detract from the setting do you think? Has anyone done the mapping work? Does it fit?

I've incorporated Hyperborea into the nearby planar landscape of Oerth; some details at https://grodog.blogspot.com/2020/05/planar-architecture-for-grodog-greyhawk-campaigns.html

I'm using Hyperborea as-is and allowing it to remain in its "native" form, rather than re-attaching it to Greyhawk.  That said, I could easily see you doing so, up above the Land of Black Ice and the Icy Sea.  It could be a polar continent up there, or perhaps be a subterranean "lost world" below the north pole, too.
