Is it possible to import multiple VOBs that have AdminVOB relation via CC Baseline Importer?

According to the following Wiki, Version Importer does not support to do this in a single cycle. But Version Importer has a workaround. How about Baseline Importer?
Initial release (Q4 2013 / 4.0.5 ) limitations
    no option to import multiple VOBs that have AdminVOB relation in a single cycle
Thank you in advance.

I understand that RTC has no concept equal to " a relationship between VOBs" and "Admin VOB". So that it is impossible to import these information. But Baseline Importer can import files and folders stored in multi VOBs.

Hi Natsumi-san, if you simply look for a way to migrate multiple VOBs in bulk, the Baseline Importer can handle it. But the Baseline Importer has other sort of limitation that you have to set it up for every single stream you'd like to migrate.
On the other hand, if you use Version Importer, you have to run it for every VOBs individually, but not for streams or branch types because it scans all the branches and import versions there.

If you try to migrate some special aspect of admin VOBs, you probably don't have a luck on it. Here is an example. RTC has a way to make a baseline across multiple components, which is called a snapshot. It is sort of an alternative for composite UCM baseline or a label-type defined at admin VOB. But it is not migrated by either of the tool.
