Question on Cortex A ARMS...

I have an extremely simple question:

My company uses ARM Cortex M micro-controllers. I would like to know if if the Cortex A can have their operating system put aside and the unit be used strictly as a micro-controller. The 1 Ghz capability is very fast with plenty of memory, it would be awesome to tap into that and use it for VFD development.

Any thoughts?
