Yes.

If need be I can do one up in Gtk+ as I don't think there's anything in
ARIA that explicitly calls for there to be multiple
described-by/description-for relations.

That said, the tree would look just like it always does. The presence or
absence of a relationship changes nothing wrt the hierarchy. [*] If you
were using Accerciser, you'd see a more than one item in the list of
Relations in the Interface Viewer. That's it.

--joanie

[*] The exception being if an implementation were to change parent-child
connections due to something like aria-owns.
