Default Wine tank as a beer fermenter?

I was looking at wine tanks and was wondering if they would be good candidates to be used for fermenting beer.

Sure the tank doesn't have a conical bottom. But other than that is there any reason these tanks could not be used for larger batches? I found some "inexpensive" tanks and it got my wheels turning.

Other than the fact that they are freak'n expensive, no problem at all.
Personally, I would spend half that and get a SS conical.
