Multiple simultaneous submissions to journals

   While I sympathize with your desire for quick feedback on submitted
articles, does (would) not multiple simultaneous submission result in
greater editorial/reviewer load, and thus increase the eventual lag?
I am assuming that others will choose as their "secondary..." journal your
(or anyones) "primary" journal.  The ultimate solution to the problem
would seem to lie in improving the efficiency of the review process.
