We always used dpns as cable needles. Once you've been knitting a while, you will always have lots of dpns, so it is not usually necessary to spring for special cable needle unless you really want to.

The only problem I would see with a much smaller cable needle is that the needle would slip out of the stitches too easily while it is not being used.
