Can epics appear in multiple initiatives?

If you have one at least one level hierarchy above epics called "initiative", can an epic be listed under multiple initiatives? 

For example:

  • Initiative 1: Mobile App Architecture
  • Initiative 2: Mobile App UX

Could an epic (Example: Epic-101) appear under both of these initiatives?

@Dylan Hebb -

Currently with AR, the issue hierarchy doesn't support one child to roll-up to multiple parent.  It is a one for one relationship.  Just like a STORY can only be associated to one EPIC and not multiple EPICs.

One possible workaround (however it will not be displayed in AR plan at this time) is for one to use LINKED issue to associate the EPIC with multiple Initiatives.

Hope this helps.
