Reading directory on two drive channels at the same time. Can it be done?

I know you can read a disk directory by opening "$,P,R" for reading via 
something like:

open 1,8,2,"$,P,R"

QUestion is, can you do this:

open 2,8,2,"$,P,R"
open 3,8,3,"$,P,R"
get from #2
get from #3

In other words, is this an error (i.e., only one channel can be open to 
read the directory), or is this legal?

I'm writing some code to emulate this, and I need to know if the 
directory references should be kept at the device level, or the channel
