No it is not. RFC 2252 is somewhat inprecise in this respect (speaking about 
structural object classes), but it referrs to the X.500 Object model. 
Structural object classes build a single object class chain; multiple 
inheritance is not possible.

You can circumvent this problem somehow by introducing auxiliary object 
classes (an Object can have an arbitrary number of auxiliary object class 
chains but must have exactly one structural object class chain).
