If you're using mdWrap you can't repeat it within an amdMD section because
in METS it's not repeatable (and you have to specify the MDTYPE). So if
the metadata comes from different schemas you repeat amdSec and specify
the type of metadata. You could then link them both from <div>s in the
structMap like this with their IDs:

<mets xmlns="http://www.loc.gov/METS/">
  <amdSec>
    <techMD ID="t1">
      <mdWrap MDTYPE="PREMIS">
	<xmlData>
	  
	</xmlData>
      </mdWrap>
    </techMD>
  </amdSec>

  <amdSec>
    <techMD ID="t2">
      <mdWrap MDTYPE="OTHER" OTHERMDTYPE="textMD">
	<xmlData>
	  
	</xmlData>
      </mdWrap>
    </techMD>
  </amdSec>

  <structMap>
    <div ADMID="t1 t2">
      <fptr></fptr>
    </div>
  </structMap>

</mets>
