No. These are digital signals and all you would do is to round the square-waves with a passive splitter. Where would you find a passive splitter?

I had never seen one, so I didn't think they existed. The other issue is what happens when two EDIDs hit one return link? It's not like a switch where the two EDIDs get combined to send to the source. In this version, the EDID electrical signals merge. I can't imagine that would work.
