Why would you want to do this? To lengthen the game time immensely? You can be right around 50 at the end of Nightmare (which is still ez mode, could do Nightmare blindfolded) if you just play through it normally. Then I would do Act I/Act II of Hell if you wanted to be 60 before the later parts of Hell.
1. Because I hate running from mobs, ever.
2. Because I have much more fun feeling overpowered than 'just powerful enough'.
I am the HERO! I should be one-shotting minions with ease. Any non-elite or named monster should fall like wheat before me. I want to beat every boss on the first attempt.
I've always loathed the concept of 'you must die x number of times to learn the fight' in any game. Let me gather my info en route to the boss (in game, not researching outside of game), and then use that knowledge to destroy him.
That's simply how I find a game the most fun.
I like your last point (I love tips on boss fights as "logs" or something scattered around game before the boss fight).
But... Normal and Nightmare ARE exactly like that, getting 10 levels ahead of where you need to be is just a silly waste of time, get maybe 5 levels ahead then. I have not played a single character who I've had a problem with in Normal or Nightmare. I don't run, at worst I use a pot. It's Hell where you'll want to farm to be 60 before you do (ez mode) much of Hell, and you'll basically never want to do Inferno.
Though... All that can be easily changed if you use the AH and/or the BS. If you buy perfect gear or make perfect gear for your character's current level, it'll be even more of a breeze. My WD I'm playing with only using the BS/JC and am breezing through Nightmare without even looking. DoT, AoE, Fear, Laugh, Repeat.
