Just to clarify things a bit: even if an ABR can be a DR, the ABR and DR 
roles are totally disjointed. One is related to /areas/, the other is 
related to /multiaccess networks/. Therefore, saying "an area with two 
DRs" is confusing at least.

(Your sentence above seemed to suggest that a multiaccess network equals 
an area. Of course, I'm sure you know the difference; I just wanted to 
explicit it).
