MIO R2s and sharing an AXR-RF?

Is it possible (read as not too convoluted) to share an AXR-RF with two MIO R2s and 4 MX900s? I looked at the IR codes that the R2s emit, and it seems to me that the R2s are best served each being used with their own AXR-RF. Couple that with splitting the IR codes into 6 or more groups...and you get the idea. I have created additional programming to incorporate MX900s into this project, but it seems rather difficult for me to keep both in a project. I was considering just replacing the existing R2s with a few more MX900s and calling it a day. Is there a trick that I'm not aware of that would make this otherwise simpler for me to control 6 rooms with 2 AXR-RFs (1 418 and 1 433)? Ultimately I would like to do all MX900s with their own controller (MRF350), and have the MXs ONLY emit AMX codes to run macro sequences, and have the source equipment wired with a second emitter (the first being the emitter from the amx processor) to the MRF350. Please someone tell me I'm on the right track...
A better solution would be to use a URC receiver to output either IR connected to an AMX IR receiver or URC serial connected to an AMX RS232 port. We've done this with RTI to provide more responsive control using non AMX remotes without the AXR-RF limitations
Well, if you're doing your own protocol, do something like this.
The IR remote outputs a string like: "Button-1", "Button-2", up to "Button-999"
Then the data event might be.
something like that.
