If you have 3 site collection reusable workflows on a content type can one start one of the others?

It would appear as if this is not possible.

 

I have 3 site collection reusable workflows associated with a content type and I want the first one to run when a list item is added, but then it will

run a switch statement and pick one of the other 2 workflows to run based on the inserted item's data.

 

I am aware that you can already use a conditional start which makes this need moot, but I am currently working on a special configuration case which

breaks this functionality. Until that case is resolved I need a workaround and I was hoping I could just to the described above, but the Workflow to start field

doesn't populate when I configure the start workflow block.

 

As I said at the beginning I don't think what I want to do is possible, but I need someone with more background to tell me it isn't so I can go fight with management =)
