open cell foam or cellulose over ceiling? #green

The ceiling has been dropped 1 foot, and sheet rocked, as well as painted- 1 prime and 2 finish coats. Tek track lighting and a few cans (IC) have also been installed. The duct work is in and installed within the 1 foot dropped ceiling. My question is: Is it ok to use open cell soy foam directly over the duct work, and over sheet rock directly? My carpenter is concerned for the expansion of the foam over the sheet rock, itself, as well as spraying directly on the installed duck work. I would save money and be able to use blown in cellulose to a depth of rough;y 15". Please advise on our best course of action. (we would box-in the cans before spraying)
