Can file-backed memory disks act like slices?

I trust this is a Seldom Asked Question...
I am using file-backed memory disks (as in mdconfig -f) to prototype
root.img gets mounted first and usr.img, var.img and tmp.img get
mounted below it and as such they are behaving as partitions.
Is there any way to get a single memory disk to behave like a slice
and itself be partitioned? That would give essentially:
This would allow the four partition images to be combined into a
single partitioned image.
Yes, I have a legitimate use for this. :)
