get both brilliance AND fire -- center stone optimized for one, sides cut for the other?

knowing the trade-off between the two, even "ideal cut",
i was thinking, why can't the center stone be cut to
get the most brilliance, and sides to get the most fire?

when you're sitting there staring at it straight-on,
you'll get the brilliance of the center diamond, but
it'll be the fire and scintillation of side stones
that will catch the eye of others as you swing it around.

plus, their different attributes will probably help the
center stone stand out more, be more distinctive, right?
