I'd say it would be possible. Not easy, but possible ;)

I've never tried that many Linux distros at once, but have had a quad-boot of XP, Vista, Ubuntu and Opensuse playing nicely in the past. All tidied up with Easy BCD.

Once you have all OS'es installed and point Easy BCD to to all relevant GRUB loaders, you should be fine.

Hell of an experiment though :p
