Oh well, better late than never I guess.

But really, Avid could have done a better job advertising/detailing the expansion possibilities!
For future reference; reading the manual on a piece of gear one is intending to drop serious $$ on reveals the best research results.

For instance page 17 of the Omni manual states "You can add additional Pro Tools|HD audio interfaces to your Pro Tools|HD system using the Expansion port on the back of HD OMNI or using additional Pro Tools|HD cards. However,
Pro Tools supports only one HD OMNI in a single Pro Tools|HD system.".

Page 19 even has a pretty picture on how to do it
