File per CoB and CoL?

The file total includes totals in CoL (gross, ISC, tax, UATP, net) as well as a net total in CoB. Without mentioning the currencies themselves. The currencies are defined in the INVOICE header.
Does this mean that one file can only contain invoices with the same CoB and the same CoL?
Please confirm. Thanks.

These fields are hash totals. Their purpose isto ensure that the entire file was loaded, and not for accounting purposes.
In fact, hash totals are only the sum, and thus, if used for accounting, would be incorrect with credit invoices. See Matt's question for an example.
