yes, it is, and not just in principle: I am running a (quite old) system
with nVidia AGP and ATI PCI card using the open source drivers since May
this year. In my setup the closed source drivers cause trouble as I had
to confirm the day before yesterday when I tried the 173.14.09 driver as
it is shipped with Debian testing and got a frozen system. The last
fglrx test is a bit older and resulted in slow 2D.

I was able to cope with black screens and freezes by using a dummy X
server for initialization as mentioned for instance here. Obviously,
it didn't help with my latest closed source nVidea test, see above. So,
perhaps it is unnecessary.
I assume you want to use Xinerama with the double head ATI card. I have
no idea about this.
Regards and enjoy :-) Alexander.
