Yes, as long as they have the same $REG_KEY.

You cannot have different TYP or IDX/MDX files. Else yes, that's
working fine. I'm using this for my maps: The Basemap for every 
country has a different FID with PID 1, and then I have different 
layers like SRTM, Fixme, KeepRight with the same FID, but different 
All are installed with the same $REG_KEY, so that the PID entries
are all together.
http://osm.thkukuk.de/ has my maps, but using a hacked installed script,
which uses Ralf Kleineisels idea with extracting the sub-img files from
gmapsupp.img with gmt.exe.
There's only one bug left, depending on the installation order, the
TYP file will be sometimes ignored.
