From my point of view, the main difficulty with this method could be to fill the cartridge with the correct amount of ink, compared to a brand new cartridge.
The 2nd difficulty can be when you want to flush and clean the cartridge, from time to time, to restore the sponges absortion capacity.

Weigh the cartridge and prepare a syringe with the necessary amount of ink.
When the ink comes out before you can inject all the ink (after a sufficient wait to let the sponge absorb) your cartridge needs a flush.
