Ice maker installation kit is a five minute job. Come on. Install harness, screw tap in, put line on and done.
Cross contamination can be avoided by having an air gap, but even then, with the valve off, the risk is de minimis.
If the hose floats your boat and there is no other sink in the area that you can use a python or something, hey go for it. I guess in California you don't need to worry about the winter months.
(BTW, if you tap off the water line with an ice maker kit, chances of your wife finding out are pretty low, trust me, I know. But I would never be one to condone not listening or being fearful of your wife and her opinion, nor would I ever advocate for adding more fish tanks to ones home just because Petco has a $1 per gallon sale, nor would I condone buying plants just because someone offers a sweet deal in the SnS, Oh, I am sorry, was I typing this out loud?)
