What difference does it make to use two different interfaces? Unlike
OpenVPN, IPSEC based tunnels do not assign addresses or pools or
whatever based on the interface. It is all defined in the connection

Are you aiming at a roadwarroir set up, then you will probably be off
easier with OpenVPN, avoiding l2tp completely.
