This does make things considerable easier. Remember that a swept wing will have lateral air flow along its span. A straight wing will have much less, but there will be a component there because of the pressure differential and vortices. The sudden change in wing section thickness will create big issues with separation of flow on the outer half of the wing, and will cause drag issues, too.
However, keep the Vickers VC

That "fence" along the wing creates similar problems to what I'm describing, but is very near the root and away from any control surfaces or lift devices so its negative effect is reduced. Your section thickness changing at the midspan will cause some major problems.
There isn't any reason on this planet I could think of that would make the wing you're describing actually work, so I really don't think it's a practical example.
The only non-continuous wing I can think of is the one on the F4-U Corsair, but that wing's cross-section was the same before and after the kink (called the "gullwing").
Tdscanuck can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that, given the above statements, there's no way your proposed wing would work at all.
