Lets not muddy the water with unrequested and unnecessary features, 
and poor understanding of the Filecore/FS/ImageFS structure. There is 
no advantage to multiple filecore partitions or mixing filecore and 
foreign partitions on the same disc. The only consideration is to 
allow access for the widest range of USB devices.

This includes those with multiple FAT partitions. However such 
partitions are purely the domain of the image filing system that 
handles the non native format (e.g. DOSFS), and neither Filecore or 
the underlying hardware filing system driver (ADFS or SCSIFS) have any 
role in this.
