To answer your question.....

no, I can't think of anyone off the top of my head that has switched from spec. ed. to reg. ed. However, I know quite a few dually-certified teachers (myself included). My colleagues and I move easily among our special ed. and reg. ed. students on a daily basis. I'm a spec. ed. teacher by title, but I could teach a class full of reg. ed. students just as well. I guess the obvious difference would be larger classes and a faster pace in general. On the other hand, there's less paperwork (well, IEP/goal type- you would probably have more papers to grade) and IEP meetings. ALL students benefit from differentiated instruction, so a good spec. ed. teacher can be a good reg. ed. teacher.
