This is common practice in estimating simultaneous equation models, of which an SVAR is a particular case. One "concentrates out" the variance covariance matrix and then maximises with respect to the remaining parameters. Indeed maximum likelihood estimation of a linear regression model (y = x.beta + u) with homoscedastic errors is often (always ?) presented in this way in textbooks.
