I and many others have done it with transformer isolated forward converters. It
works just fine but the usual reason for this is to use an array of compact
transformers but still get high power. I don't see any reason why it can't work
with flybacks but I also don't see any advantage in doing it at such a low
power level. Why not just one primary and 6 secondaries on the same core ?
