I don't think that will work.  See the note in that file just a few
lines down:

    Not all local delivery agent transports can support a recipient
    limit greater than 1.  Be sure to check the man page of the
    specific transport before attempting this with anything but the
    Postfix LMTP client.

Also, recent comments on the postfix list imply that even if local
supports multiple recipients, you'll see a significant performance hit
over using the lmtp transport directly.
