You can have this. But without extra information routing would require
custom software. What I mean by that is: if you enter a route per host in
your routing table for each computer on the disjoint segments you may be
able to get the router to talk to each site. However, the chances for
entities of the two segments to talk to each other are slim.
Oh, and a question comes to mind: WHY ?!?!?!
