My only thought against that is that having a solid walk-around lens is a priority if you're only going to have one piece of glass for awhile, and 17-55 is the ideal walk-around range for a 1.6x.
But if you feel like 24 is wide enough, then you certainly get more reach on the zoomed end. For me, 17mm is where I often need my lens for indoors and landscapes and architecture, and 50-55mm is a solid range for portraits, bokeh, etc., especially at f/2.8.
