Would you put a 300 f2.8 on a series 2 Gitzo?

As the title says, would the Gitzo 2-series (in my case a 2531, with M10 head) adequately support a 300mm f2.8 lens? I know the Gtizo recommendation is to not exceed 200mm with this tripod, but much in the same way people commonly use a Series 3 for their 500mm (sometimes even 600mm?) lenses, would a series 2 be useable for a 300mm f2.8?

What about a 200mm f/2?

Topic started out of curiosity and boredom, unless someone would like to deposit the necessary $5000 in funds that I may be able to test the combination and report back the findings
