Mixed Multi/Single shot?

Can a unit of shades or skinks or some such similar mix their shooting style (say, double-shooting with the closer models only, or double-shooting with the unit champion only) so that some models in the unit multishot and other models singleshot?

This question came up in my gaming group and we decided no, that all models must follow the same decision. Our reasoning was this: I can't have my front rank of skeletons with spears use hws and shlds while the 2nd rank uses spears. Or I can't have two grave guard use halberds and the other two use hand weapons. They all follow the "general's orders."

Having some multishoot and some single shoot seems a cheesy way to overcome to hit modifiers when part of a unit is at long range.

If someone has a compelling argument to the contrary, I'm open to it, or even better, some official reference to it.

I agree that they shouldn't be able to however an argument that COULD be raised against yours is that the entire unit is using the same weapons just in a different way. Yeah your unit can't use half handweapons and half spears but technically neither is the unit with multishot they're all using the same weapon. I still think they're not allowed to do it though.
