If you want, you can combine them yourself into one (set of) gerber(s) and
call it the 48 channel botox injector pcb. The disadvantage is that you have
to cut them up yourself. Or put rows of small holes in them, so you can
break them later.
It does saves them some work, they don't have to put in the v-grooves for
breaking, or program the paths for the router/milling. The material that
the router cuts away, costs money too.
Even if they say they don't allow your own panelisation tricks, they
will probably just smile and make your pcb as requested.
