You certainly can. Remember: both freewheels engage in the same direction and coast in the same direction. It's only how the chain wraps around them that's different. If it helps, imagine two chains driven by two chainrings on the same crank, and driving independent freewheels on the same side of the wheel. One chain is looped normally , while the other crosses in the middle like so: ( )><( ) So if you hold the cranks still, both freewheels will be still, thus they'll both be coasting.
