Default When is a RAID really a RAID? Will this increase track count?

It makes sense that a RAID would be faster than a single drive, since you can stripe across multiple drives to divide the access time up between them. What if you just record different tracks on different drives, sort of in the round-robin method described in PTLE? Wouldn't this basically accomplish the same thing as a true RAID without the increased probability of data loss that RAID brings? Has anybody got any experience with this method?
