I believe this is incorrect.

For example, I have an IDE Zip drive and an IDE CD burner on my
secondary IDE bus.

The Zip drive is in PIO mode, the burner is in UDMA mode.

Now, I don't access both at the same time, since that always sucks on
IDE, but I never need to.

I hate IDE, but you can't get a 52x CD burner on SCSI for $10 like just
I did.

Sigh... :(
