Yes, is possible, but unsupported :).
For example, you have inherit-pkg-dir for /opt directory and zone name 
is foo and zone root is in /zone/root/.
First, on unbooted zone, you copy:
cp -rP /opt /zone/root/opt
then delete inherit-pkg-dir from xml config file: /etc/zones/foo.xml
and then you can boot the zone.
I don't know behavior if you copy /platform directory. (tested only for 
/usr/, /sbin, /usr directory)
