Sure. Why not? Lots of folks mount an azimuth rotator inside the tower then a mast with the elevation rotator above the tower top on the side of the mast. My mast continues up and supports 6m, 10m, 1296 and wxsat stuff.

Is this where using the "separation kit" comes into play?  I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the installation parameters.
