Mezzo - rolling whilst folded

I'm not too familiar with the Mezzo design yet. From what I can see in pics there are 2 small castor wheels on the rack that look primarily to aid in the folding of the rear triangle. Is there a system whereby the Mezzo can roll easily on it's rack. . . does it require a mod of some kind?

Does the collapsing the seat post lock the fold in the same way as a Brompton or is it held secure by some other method?

Picking up the bike from one end when folded will allow you to roll on the small caster wheels. Larger skate wheels work better though I do not have any experience with this since I only have the original caster wheels.

Lowering the seat post locks the bike and does not prevent the back from swinging out when lifted just like a Brompton.

Is there any way to mount another pair of castors so that it can roll on 4?
