everything is possible,
and we even have the sync-group parameter
    # Resynchronization of all devices in one group runs parallel.
    # Groups are serialized in ascending order. You should avoid
    # that devices which lower devices share one and the same physical
    # disk sync in parallel. The default group is 0. I.e. per default
    # all devices sync parallel.
    # sync-group = 1

yes, maybe I should have mentioned that in the comment you cited, too.
but it is in the very same file, so what :)
