Default Mixing yeasts?

Has anyone ever (thought of, or...) tried mixing two strains of yeast (Wyeast liquid) in a batch?

I have some that are getting dated so was thinking I might try a 'specialty' beer with a couple. Of course, I wouldn't use ones that might counter, like one that promotes esters and one that promotes phenols...

Yeah, you can even buy blends.

I've been thinking about doing this with 1056 and 1272. I like how clean and attenuative 1056 is, but I HATE how it's such a low flocculator. I was thinking that blending the two would help a lot with clearing the beer. Me and yeast bite are mortal enemies.
