It's not the brakes that cause the front end to dive, it's the deceleration of the vehicle. Decelerating the car shifts its weight forward so there is a lot more weight over the front suspension in a hard stop.
I hate to bring this back up, but I tried something. If you pull the ebrake the rear of the car squats. What would make this any different than using the hydraulic rear brakes only?
