two switch loops, one light.

Is there any problems in using two switch loops to control one light?

I have a two door coat closet that I would like to add automatic light switches (single pole switches) to control the closet light. So, if either door or both are open the light is on and if both doors closed the light is off. I realize when the light is all the loop wires will be hot (even the one for the open switch), but is this a problem? It seems fine to me am I missing something though?

As long as everything is a single circuit then you can have as many single pole switches as you want.
