Why allow only one auditing consumer?

It looks like the way the auditing code is using netlink there can only be
one user space process that recieves auditing messages.
Is this correct?
I was looking into using auditing for monitoring the lifetime of a set of
processes, but I don't want my super-init type of component to rule out using
SELinux (or whatever else was planning on consuming auditing messages.)
Assuming I understood the code correctly, would a patch that enabled multiple
auditing consumers be in-line with the goals of the sycall auditing mechanism?
