Multiple associated alphas are possible in theory - and there are no 
guidelines for how to handle that case.
I suspect it would depend on the application that generated the file, 
and what it intended the extra associated alpha channels to do (act 
as additional masks, or act as additional transparency).  This boils 
down to: do you screen or multiply the associated alphas to create a 
final alpha?
