In an ATG+Endeca integration, is there a way to enable Endeca's 'multi-select' dimension feature for all categories and all sub-categories in ATG? 

We have a need to create all ATG Product Catalog categories & respective subcategories as multi-select.  We want to configure every BCC catalog category & its sub category hierarchy as multi-select dimensions in Endeca. We are able to achieve this with root category multi-select but not with sub-category multi-select.

To describe the issue in detail, consider we have Product Catalog as

Considering the structure above, we are able to enable multi-select at the main Product Category level i.e (Bags, Travel) but not at (Laptop Bags, Party Bags) and (Light Travel, Shifting base). Note, we are not looking for the way to make normal product repository attributes as multi-select, our question is related to category-dim-output-config.xml file which controls other category settings like Catalog Taxonomy, and converts it into Category Dimension hierarchy. Our goal is ALL the categories & sub-categories to be multi-select eligible.
