multiple LMTP unix sockets: any problems?

Should I expect any problems with multiple unix LMTP sockets?

On my system packages cyrus-imap makes LMTP socket available to mail 
group. I created second unix LMTP socket available to lmtp group to 
allow *SOME* users submit directly via LMTP.

I use "hackish" perl script to make Net::SMTP work over UNIX sockets. It 
seems to establish connection (connect OK) but receives no greeting 
(waiting for select). Strace reported similar results for deliver 
(executed with custom configuration file).
