It is not recommended as it violates the receommendation and
common expectatios of everyone.  The WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 packet
takes two hops.  Thus, when it arrives as:

DIGI1,WIDE1,DIGI2,WIDE2*

It all kinda makes sense.  Two hops were used.  But if he used
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 which is a 3 hop path, it would arrive as:

DIGI1,WIDE1,DIGI2,DIGI3,WIDE2*

And we see he three hops, and we see that the sum of the WIDE1*
and WIDE2* add up to 3.  It makes no sense to confuse everyone
by doing anything else.
