My assumptions are:

 * I trust no single source of Random Numbers.

 * no particular difficulty with lossy combination.

Do you really trust that no single source of entropy can have knowledge of the other source's output, so it can surreptitiously correlate its own?

I.e, you are are also assuming that these sources are *independent*.
