That is interesting question... I just found following:

In section "2. Basic Restrictions & Requirements" there is information
about "Partition Descriptor":

A Partition Descriptor Access Type of read-only, rewritable,
overwritable, write-once and pseudo-overwritable shall be supported.
There shall be exactly one prevailing Partition Descriptor recorded per
volume, with one exception. For Volume Sets that consist of single
volume, the volume may contain 2 non-overlapping Partitions with 2
prevailing Partition Descriptors only if one has an Access Type of
read-only and the other has an Access Type of rewritable, overwritable,
or write-once. The Logical Volume for this volume would consist of the
contents of both partitions.

But again it does not answer to your question.
