i believe the correct term would then be split loop, as the shared res would pool water. I'd be curious to see how little it affects temps, compared to one big loop. The only benefit I see atm is if you've got two low powered pumps, or if its easier to route due to case layout/limitations.
I'm really not seeing the point, unless its aesthetic, then if so, go for it, though you'd be better off, safety & parity wise, putting the pumps in series & having one giant loop.
-an STH10 dual pump, single loop ~1 gallon loop runner.
we as humans REALLY like to build in extreme complexity that isn't necessary, or beneficial in anyway. It's something you learn to avoid, one build after another.
example - I used to split my loop, n each radiator to its own header, pressure sensors, etc etc. Now its two pumps to one header, 40 fans to another, a single flow sensor, and two temp (water and ambient) simple as pie, I still love my AQ6XT though.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
