With RAID 4, where the "parity drives"  are in fact dedicated to parity 
information, the controller could just store the parity data mirrored on 
more than one drive. Unfortunately write performance on RAID 4 is 
absolutely horrible, and a second or third parity disk would not help 
with that.

I suppose there's nothing stopping a controller adding a second disk's 
worth of duplicate parity information when striping a four or more disk 
RAID 5 array, but I thought that's basically what RAID 6 was.
