It could, but that won't exactly look pretty on a shield symbol designed 
for a single line ref. :)

The issue for shields is that mapnik doesn't yet have the ability to 
vary the shield location along a line, when there already is a shield 
where it wants to render another one. So, while we can easily split on 
";", mapnik then attempts to render them all at the same spot. 
Obviously, only the first one would render.
