Question Surface conditions for CSG 

Keywords: BREP, CSG, optical surface condition

Is it possible to assign different optical surface conditions to different surfaces of a CSG solid? By optical surface condition I mean surface type, surface finish and surface model. If I have a cube that is made up of a certain material would it be possible to have all six faces of the cube to have different optical surfaces? If I understand right, it should be possible using a BREP solid where one defines 6 planes of different optical surfaces and allign them in the required space to make a cube. I would like to know if this is possible for CSG Solids. In that case one could define a cube as a G4box and define different optical surface properties to each face. This is useful in the study cases where the cube shares boundary with a different material on each face.
