Problem would be the DNA would degrade, but be left in solution with the RNA. So you end up having to do a size fractionation anyway to remove it.

I actually think the Zymo DNA-free RNA purification is the way to go for this. Your RNA prep is done and fairly clean. Hit it with a DNAse followed by a column clean-up to both remove the degraded DNA as well as the DNAse. As a bonus you also remove any other residual proteins or contaminants still remaining in your prep.
