You bet, we're currently running 8 BSSIDs on our APs at different sites, in fact you'll probably want to tie each SSID to their own VLAN as well.  If you're planning on using VoWL (Voice over Wireless LAN) you may want to see if those phones support WMM (essentialy Wireless QOS).  More info on WMM can be found here: https://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/solutions/Enterprise/Mobility/vowlan/41dg/vowlan_ch2.pdf.

Also, you can authenticate data via dot1x as well.  What's cool is that if you're running ACS 5 then you can set WMM levels and VLANs based on criteria and have one SSID for a variety of purposes.  What version of code are you running on the 4400?

Hope this helps
