There's no way that Tolkien would have ever sanctioned something like that. Melkor was evil, Illuvatar was good and Melkor's evil lead him to be called Morgoth and got him and his servant Sauron a one way ticket to the void. Interesting to read though... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgoth%27s_Ring I've always thought this interesting.
You have to keep in mind that The Silmarillion was Bilbo's translation of ancient Elf history, told from an Elven perspective. I'm sure there is another side to the story. Nothing is completely in black and white, good and evil.
