several channels mode

Would it be possible to modify the Mysensors protocol so that a gateway could work on several channels simultaneously ,thereby completely avoiding collisions ? (but the object side arduinos would still transmit and receive on a single channel each).
Actually is there any mechanism already implemented for collision avoidance ... ?
I understand the very rare and short length packet transmissions on a smart objects network probably makes such kind of effort completely worthless (?) , detection of collisions by not receiving the expected acknowledge being more than enough , however being able for a repeater to transmit and receive simultaneously on two different channels would make it possible to grant the lowest latencies (one would not need to receive a complete packet before starting to forward it ).
