ASA and security contexts


I was wondering about something with the security context feature of ASAs. Can you daisy chain contexts internally without binding them to physical interface? It shows in the ASA book to use external routers to go between contexts but I would prefer not to do this. Let's say I wanted to have a context in the front that was controlled only by the firewall administrator and then fanning out to 4 or 5 contexts behind that. Control of each of those contexts would be given out to different administrators that need control of their own firewalls.

I have seen this done with checkpoint and their VSX setup. I was hoping that this can be done with cisco as well.
