1" vs. 2" sections for sectional warping?

first of all: I have only seen the warping wheel in pictures, so I don't really know how it works.

But I'm thinking - couldn't you wind 2" (or 3 or...) and wind two (or three) sections at a time? Put some kind of divider (like taping a chopstick to the comb?) to know where the sectional divider should go?

Myself, sometimes I wind more that 1" worth and leave empty sections in between - have not had problems (so far). But: I've only done this with short warps (under 15 meters). (Picture here.)
