Obviously, you will be able to install 2 dialers if the dialers support that. 
If not I suggest to add necessary dependencies tp the packages.

Don't consider this as something we completely designed and intend to push 
over you. Feel free to make suggestions. I see this approach as a chance to 
combine the different efforts on a single platform with the maximal user 
experience. Instead of this feature is working on image X but not on image Y 
which has feature Z running, etc.

Get in touch with our distro team to include your project. You can accelerate 
the process by providing a working bb file.
