QoS Shaping Subinterface

This may not even be possible but figured I'd ping a few other brains. We are in the process of setting multiple sub-interfaces out to branch offices off our own transport. Part of this is providing them committed sub-rate interface speeds. Easy enough with an MQC shaping policy. However here's the gotcha we'd like if other sub-interfaces on the PHY aren't in use to allow the site to burst. I'm wondering if this kind of dynamic sharper is possible.

class Signal

policy-map Shape-DATX
class class-default

policy-map Shape-CRCO
class class-default
bandwidth 20000
shape average 20000000
service-policy Ring-Traffic
interface GigabitEthernet3/0/1

interface GigabitEthernet3/0/1.39
description CRCO
encapsulation dot1Q 39
ip address
service-policy output Shape-CRCO
interface GigabitEthernet3/0/1.40
description DATX
encapsulation dot1Q 40
ip address
service-policy output Shape-DATX

So in the above example if Gi3/0/1.40 had zero traffic Gi3/0/1.39 should be able to take all of it's 60Mbps. Basically dynamic load sharing. Not sure if this is even possible with QoS MQC. Curious as to others thoughts.
