dual MSL6000 attached to a single FC

I was wondering if anyone know if you can have a single FC e1200-320 card control two MSL6030s independently. Reviewing the specs on the FC card it has two SCSI channels so is there any reason that i couldn't just chain the two libraries to a single card.
something like this.
FC->SCSI1->Library1->LTO3->LTO3->Terminater.
\->SCSI2->Library2->LTO3->LTO3->Terminater.

Two LTO3 on the same scsi bus is not recommended, only one per scsi bus is better


Basically your config (if you use only one LTO per library) could probably work but is not supported by HP
