I think the problem with this is the limited current capacity of the conductor in the LED strip. If a "weak" point burns through, you'll increase the voltage to each of the remaining LEDs, burning them out.That said, there are companies that sell 120 volt LED strips... I just don't know if they use some sort of driver, or direct drive.
One way to cut down on the cleanup of the aluminum is to use an electric miter saw with a carbide blade to make the cuts. I made dozens of cuts on one project with one blade with nearly no hand work required, and no apparent damage to the blade. Some blades specify "non-ferrous metals," but I used a moderately priced construction blade.
