There is crosstalk on playback, but only at a negligible level, well below
the noise in any monaural source likely to be used.
I have made such dual-monaural recordings and, indeed, have some commercial
releases. For most purposes, the problem of index marks is prohibitive,
where that of single-channel playback is simply inconvenient. (When the
commercial releases were on the market, a three-CD set came with a channel
selector switch to be installed between CD player and preamp. Needless to
say, even with the lower price, it did not prove popular.)
