If you know that you want both of those BSSes, you'd simply start the
second one first. If you do not know about the second one in the
beginning and start the first one first, you'll need to meet the
constraints on the primary/secondary channel.

I don't see how this would be of any justification against automatically
detecting local constraints when starting new BSSes while I see not much
chances of getting the configuration parameter accepted.
