Oh, now that's just stinking COOL!!!! Great idea! Great fabrication!!! It's like a quick attachment plate on a skid steer. With those three pipes on the back side for reinforcement, you could also make those attachment points, with big bar pins that could slide into the pipes and pin in place whatever attachment you have on it.
Heck, I'd make a blade with the wear edge and shoes mounted on it that you could pin to this plate. Then, when you're done plowing snow, just pull a couple pins, drop the blade, and put the bucket on. Since you can't angle the blade side to side, you might even want to build a push box like this:
This way you can control where you're pushing snow. That's all they use around here for clearing parking lots with front end loaders. It's amazing to see how much snow they can push, and how well they can direct it because of the wings on the plow. You could use the exact same design you already have for the bucket, just no bottom on it, a couple of reinforcing bars, then skid shoes and a cutting edge.
