only a tiny amount

Olive oil would be better. Get to it.

I wonder when the CPSC will require some feature on hydraulic brakes to try to make them idiot-proof, like the things that frustrate the use of quick-release axles.

Obviously it is possible to do this, but it's an appallingly bad idea. You will wreck the brake system.

I did it. Seems good. Thanks guys.
They are cheap old brakes which is why I'm experimenting

Sure, just make sure you immediately remove the brakes from the vehicle and throw them in the garbage, then get a ride to the parts store and buy a new caliper, brake lines, master cylinder, as well as brake fluid. Then have a professional install them.
