That's a really nice question, but to answer it you must refer to the structure of the Match, Does the Match process treat two different speciality as one? or is there a sub scale algorithm for different specialities, categories such as the advanced type, categorical, FAP, sponsored, prelim?
I think and thats me anticipating the algorithm treats different programs of the same category ( as in categorical) within the same algorithm, in way to make it make sense more the couples match is according to my understanding a match algorithm within the BIG main Match algorithm.
Take what I mentioned above with much of grain of salts.
I have added some articles that might be useful in answering your question.
