This is a good point. In the electronics world where I live (design ICs) we use a technique called ping-ponging. This simply means alternately writing data bewteen 2 ports. This works if the port is the speed bottleneck and not the device driving the ports. Nikon may have included this ping-pong capability by physical design and will implement with a future sofware upgrade.
