No.

Protel does not officially support multiple netnames - it just seems to 
choose one of them.  Possibly the first it comes to and this may be related 
to the sheet order issue mentioned before (that affects the print out 
order).  Others may have done more experimentation.

As a work around, you could make all but the desired netlabels annotations 
rather than a netlabel.  You get the advantages of formatting your Sch as 
you wish but without the multiple netnames disadvantage.  Of course you 
need to put the real netlabel on every connection.  You would be defining 
one net name and using annotations to simply document additional 
information as you wish.

I have a question though - how does multiple netnames and a scope of Nets 
and Ports Global make a sch more legible?
