Yes, at least that's an idea and there weren't objections from Sugar Labs
Infrastructure Team members (at least for now:).

My personal reason to not make separation between Sugar and Zero Install
communities, is that both communities share similar ideas, i.e.,
stimulating direct contact between software creators and software users,
stimulating downstream experiments with software and sharing results
of experiments in fast and useful manner.

That's possible (with improving current OBS patch). There is only one
OBS design restriction, only one version will be built per OBS package,
i.e., from source feed uploaded to particular OBS package.
