saml-nameid.xml - Multiple c:candidate Values

If I need to use a custom value or a different NameID format for a
particular SP, I add it to saml-nameid.xml similar to this (depending on
the SP's requirements):

        <bean parent="shibboleth.SAML2AttributeSourcedGenerator"
            p:attributeSourceIds="#{ {'bannerNameID'} }">
            <property name="activationCondition">
                <bean parent="shibboleth.Conditions.RelyingPartyId"
c:candidate="" />

Is there a way to include multiple values for c:candidate so that I don't
have to create a new bean for each SP that has the same requirement?
