Yes, just assign several. If the client requests multiple, you can respond with several.
However, that doesn't make sense, because IPsec doesn't offer a broadcast domain,
which the client could be connected to or that could be bridged to a LAN.

The best practice is to assign roadwarriors IPs from a specific subnet whose only
purpose is to address roadwarriors from.
