No, that's wrong. You can only ASK for a maximum
of two, but what you ask for and what you get
from Yahoo are two often unrelated things.

For example, I once asked for one category for
Clearly James Glassblowing - and was given three.
On the other hand, it's more common to ask for two
and get only one.

The Yahoo submission process is run by humans.
VERY SMART humans. They know more scams than
you've had hot dinners. If your "mirror" page
even remotely resembles your original one don't
even bother trying to submit it, new domain
name or not.
