No. This is done in preloader as one of the first things.
The reason preloader reserves all the memory (pretty much all of the lover 2GB) is to keep everything else [system libraries] out of it.
If you change that - you risking of having some system library loaded in the middle of the address space that Wine have to use for windows application.
