I've done something quite similar to this in 11.2.0.x RAC.

The same databases were involved, but two different networks, internal and external.

That was a couple years ago, just looked up my notes and found the Oracle Support document:

    How to Configure A Second Listener on a Separate Network in 11.2 Grid Infrastructure [ID 1063571.1]

As I recall the note was a little unclear is spots, but we did get it to work.
The method is not entirely straight forward, but is supported, and once setup works as expected.

I would point you to a blog if I had written one ( shame on me ), but I did write an internal document that I think could be easily converted to a blog.

If this note seems to cover it , feel free to ask any questions you may have about it.
