That's worth knowing.

Certainly does: this is a LUN on a HP EVA8000 (dual HSV210 controllers)
via dual fabric:
sptsrv2:~# multipath -ll
[size=10 GB][features=1 queue_if_no_path][hwhandler=0]
\_ round-robin 0 [prio=4][enabled]
\_ 0:0:0:9 sde 8:64 [active][ready]
\_ 0:0:1:9 sdf 8:80 [active][ready]
\_ 1:0:0:9 sdg 8:96 [active][ready]
\_ 1:0:1:9 sdh 8:112 [active][ready]
and using iostat shows traffic across all four paths.
