Combine SnapProtect and VMware SRM SnapMirror operations?

Is it possible to have SnapProtect and VMware SRM use the same SnapMirror relationship?

 

SnapProtect:

Primary (Snap) FAS8xxx --> aux copy SnapMirror (offsite) FAS8xxx

then

Primary (Snap) --> aux copy SnapVault (local to Primary (Snap)) FAS2xxx

aux copy SnapMirror FAS8xxx --> aux copy SnapVault (local to each other) FAS2xxx

 

SRM:

Primary (Snap) FAS8xxx --> SnapMirror (offsite) FAS8xxx

 

If we use the same SnapMirror relationship, the VMware SRM will keep the secondary array updated within the RPO and then the SnapProtect operation just updates that SnapMirror.
