Cory,
At the risk of sounding too combative, why would you want to do that?
Won't it confuse your readers to have different variables appear as if
they were the same thing in your table? It seems like you would have
to do an awful lot of explaining. I think in general, it is advisable
to not make readers (and especially reviewers) work too hard to follow
the information you've presented.

Regards,
Rebecca
