If you must have both (I'm of the opinion to skip the aero bars because I don't find that position that useful for touring) and you have a threadless-style stem, you can mount two stems on your steerer tube, and then a second handlebar on your lower stem where the bag goes. I did this just to remove clutter and because I have a lot of junk that wouldn't otherwise fit (light and switch, second light, handlebar bag, trip computer, reflector-yeah, I'm paranoid about being hit). I forget where I first read of it, but it works out well for me.
