DDR3 Clock Routing

Hi All,

I'm just getting started with the IMX6Quad processor (MCIMX6Q6AVT10AC) and I had a question about the DDR3 interface.  What is the purpose of having two different DDR clocks (DRAM_SDCLK_0 / DRAM_SDCLK_1)?  I've looked at the SABRE reference design and one clock goes to 2 of the DDR chips and one goes to the other two.  Is this just for convenience?  All of the other command and address lines have to be T'd to go all of the DDR chips since they only come out at a single ball...  Wouldn't it be better, from a timing perspective, to use one of the clocks and T it the same as the command and address lines?
