Dear Iddo, No, it is not valid to use a different design matrix for the dispersion estimation. edgeR will handle your model with 400 samples, but it will admitedly be slow. If this is too slow, then switch to voom() in the limma package, which will be very fast, or to glmQLFTest() in the edgeR package, which will still be relatively slow but faster than the glm routines in edgeR (or DESeq2).
