Does ClearQuest Synchronizer support n-to-1 mapping?

Below is my synchronization planning base on my current CQ schema:

      CQ                                 RTC

Record type 1                 Work Item type 1
 Field 1               <---->     Property 1
 Field 2
 Field 3               <---->     Property 2
Record type 2
 Field 4               <---->     Property 3
 Field 5

Does CQ Synchronizer support this mapping scenario? Where record's fields of multiple record types are mapped into properties of a single work item type.

Doesn't it mean that you want to link multiple CQ records to a single RTC work item (forget about the field mapping first)? Just imagining how to tell which records to map to which work item already makes my head spin. I suppose there are some relationships between the CQ records, but I can't see how it can be captured in the mapping.

I agree with Donald,

as far as I am aware, you can link one record type to one work item type. You have only the attributes of the record type and the work item type to map. RTC creates a proxy for each synchronized item and keeps a 1 to 1 relationship between those. It detects changes on one side and propagates them to the other based on this connection.
