Two Native VLANs in One WiSM

I have 2x6509 each with a WISM module running 5.2.178, now i wanted to design high availability,

Assuming WiSM in Coreswitch-1 has A1 and B1 sub controllers and Coreswitch-2 has A2 and B2 as sub controllers, I want to use A1 and B1 as one one Mobility group and A2 and B2 as another mobility group where acting as 2 different networks, with LWAP's getting different IP's, in such cases i should be running 2 different native vlans per WiSM Module.

Is this design technically right? what are the pros and cons to it?

I plan to run a seperate guest/video/voice WIFI network it it works.

Thank you in advance

That should be fine but really the native VLAN will have nothing to do with your design. Keep in mind all a native VLAN is on a 802.1q trunk is the VLAN which the packets in this VLAN do not get a 802.1q tag added to them.

we make it like that:

create two AP-Manger Interfaces L3/L2 on 6500er....WLC1+WLC3 have configured Ap Manager Ip Adress from VLAN AP Manager1 and WLC2+WLC4 have configured AP Manager Ip Adress from VLAN AP Manger 2

Some APs are assigned to Vlan 1 and the others to vlan you can configure two WLCS for High availability for each AP Group....
