Possible to use Thunderbolt Display (TB2) as an "internal display"?

Hi,

I'm considering getting a Gigabyte RX 580 Gaming Box or a Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Puck for my 2016 TB3 Macbook Pro.

From what I've been able to gather, 10.13.4 supports accelerating the MBP internal display (with a small performance penalty).

Now, my idea is to use my multi Thunderbolt Display setup, connected straight to the MBP through a TB2-TB3 adapter.

TBD <-> MBP <-> eGPU

Is this possible, treating an external TB2 display as an "extension" of the MBP internal display?

Thanks a million in advance for your help!
