Version is as always important. In 10g and higher EE you should be able to set up alternate archive locations using the log_archive_dest_<n> parameters
Apart from that in 10g you should ideally archive to the Flash Recovery Area. The size of this area is configurable.

Your scenario requires extra uncatalog catalog commands. Bound to fail, while difficult to automate.
If you don't use the alternate destination and don't use the flash recovery area, scheduling separate archivelog backups will be a much better idea.
