In the legacy era you have Cade that already walks the line, but that brings him unbalance instead of balance.
But there are other instances where some kind of balance is hinted at.
FOr example, there's Luke in the Thrawn books. Obviously Luke knows that Jedi use their ability to influence minds to their advantage. So he begins to use it in combat, confusing pilots in order to gain the upper hand.
He later realizes the this gives him an uneasy feeling as if it's too far to the Dark Side, so he stops using it for that purpose. But obviously the ability itself isn't evil, it's the extent (it would seem) that it's used.
So I think the concept is interesting. Obviously, the problem with the Dark Side is that it's quicker, so people often can't or won't maintain a balance. They embrace it fully. So an order that attempts to balance the disciplines could be very cool.
