Could the LCC be adapted to just intonation? Why or why not?

Even though the Concept is about the chromatic world in equal temperament I don't see why a piece composed using the LCC couldn't be performed using just intonation. The main issue would be finding performers that could handle playing the harmonically pure chords.
I don't believe just intonation is addressed in the book nor is there any specifically that can be cross-referenced other than the strength of the Perfect Fifth.

Just Intonation has been a staple of NY composer David First, for many years. http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/david ... d183309129

In terms of the Concept, I always felt that an electronic instrument will be designed which will be tuned to play it automatically. This is/would be a great piece of research for someone - and much more useful than arguing about alternative theories (which thankfully appears to have stopped).
