We routinely splice up to 8 volumes or years of a journal onto a single
reel of microfilm.  It certainly saves a great deal of space (our main
concern) and as long as you also limit splicing to 2/3 of a reel it
doesn't seem to cause problems with the microfilm readers.

You do need a limit on the number of volumes per reel so that one patron
doesn't have the entire run of a journal.
