yes, people can follow this model of multiple targets. As I wrote before, as it can help  
to outsmart per session bottlenecks / take advantage of parallelism in both sides.

indeed such an approach would add locking when going to the backing store in case a target 
has multiple sessions, e.g multiple readers of the same lun.
