I think this has the potential to cause problems.  It would lead to adding the Source directory to the header search path for some build systems, which would cause all sorts of weird #include styles to work even though we don't want to support them.  I'd suggest sticking with Source/WTF and the code inside a wtf subdirectory, and we can consider further reorganisation down the line if necessary.
