It seems to me that this has been discussed before but I can't locate the thread nor the reference in the 2002 NEC.I think I remembered that it is limited to one conductor.

EDIT: OOPS! Sorry I misread your post. I believe 110.3(B) would apply. Also take a look at article 11014(A), last sentance. "Terminals for more than one conductor...shall be so identified". I believe as long as your terminals are listed for it, you may land more than one EGC on the terminal.
