[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Importing EAD components with multiple sibling top containers

Is it possible to import an EAD component that is comprised of multiple parent-level top containers and have ASpace create two sibling top container instances? Currently it seems ASpace will create a single instance with one top container for the <container> positioned first, then create children/grandchildren for each subsequently positioned <container> in that single instance.

Is there a container attribute/semantics I could add to define this parallel logical relationship that would force ASpace to create two instances each with a top container? Or does the EAD importer as a general use tool assume most content is of a type parent/child?
