Possible to relocate Vista multiple account folders to NAS?

I'm wondering if the option to relocate account folders such as
Documents, Pictures etc. in Vista is possible with the setup I have in
mind.

I have multiple PCs on my network and want to relocate the
corresponding account folders from each PC - i.e. MyAccount from PC1 &
MyAccount from PC2 - to the same locations on a NAS, thus whatever
changes are made on one will be reflected on another - giving a kind of
Active Directory 'impression'.

Example: Go to Documents and select Properties > Location > Move, and
relocate directory to NAS. Do the same for corresponding
account/directory on another PC and relocate to same location on NAS.

I want to know whether relocating directories from two separate
directories/accounts/PCs to the same location on the NAS will cause
problems, or whether files will simply be accessable from either
account/PC.

If it's possible, will there be any permission issues (Windows and/or
NAS) and could such relocation still be done (even if some tweaking is
necessary) for directories such as Favorites, Contacts, Links etc?
