Separating destinations for each instance

I am planning to enable auditing on my Oracle databases and use external audit trail files. Since I have multiple instances sharing the same Oracle home, should I separate the destinations for each instance into their own directories to avoid file name conflicts?

I would put each audit file in its own directory, just to avoid any confusion. My directory path would contain the SID so I would know which directory corresponds to which instance.
