Dangerous territory, Scott, sorry. You are confusing a rudimentary lesson taught to young school students: The difference between possible and probable/likely.
Anything is possible, right? I mean, it's possible aliens from another galaxy are behind the pyramids of Egypt. But what is the probability/likelihood of that being true?
Your scenario is unlikely; notably less probable then other explanations.
There is also the idea the blocks for the chamber were brought to the site (at that level of the pyramid) and were marked when ready to install ... previous marks were being written beside. Even may have been relative to how the blocks were sitting and the stance of the writer.
In the end, yours is a futile rabbit hole down which your elephant head is stuck. All to re-create the Sitchin adventure ride where Khufu requires removal in order to explain the greater, loony narrative. Pshaw.
But hey, if it gets you book sales and further $$ for AA appearances, well you need to make a living I guess.
