I am doing it.  There are few small problems though.
First of all, Windows updates values for HrStorageSize and HrStorageUsed 
only when SNMP service restarts.  So, you can schedule a "net snmp stop
; net snmp start" .bat file every half an hour.  

But if you do that, then you will see that there is something strange
happens with your CPU stats, because on each service restart there is a
pretty good chance that OIDs of your CPUs will change a little.

Currently, I use several workarounds which you can get from my site at

I am also playing with perf2mib staff now, but I have not managed to
solve all problems straight away.  I will update my site in case I
progress anywhere.  Enjoy.
