LTC3630 in fly-buck topology

Hello, is it possible to use the LTC3630 (and in general any Linear synchronous buck converter) in the so-called "fly-buck" topology? Just to clarify, this is the way Texas Instruments calls a mix berween the buck and the flyback topologies, ad described in this page:

 

Multi-Output Fly-Buck™ Topology | Power Management | TI.com 

 

As far as I can understand, any synchronous buck converter set for a duty cycle less than 50% should be compatible, but I'm not sure if in reality some specific optimizations are required.

 

Thanks!
