This is an interesting proposition. In my old 1959 edition MOTORS MANUAL, in the Chevrolet six cylinder engine section, where they talk about deglazing cylinders, it says, "in the absence of a cylinder hone, emory/crocus cloth can be used". I'm sure that was for an empty block, and then cleaned, but it just seemed so "caveman". It probably would have been best just to leave the rust, and treat it like a locked up block from sitting too long. Use penetrants to loosen, and crank the motor over; it'll take care of itself.
