More Than Two External Editors in LR CC?

Can I have more than two external editors set up in LR CC? Several of the Topaz plugins will only operate as standalone apps. Their solution is to set the ones that can't be used as true plugins as external editors. But it appears to me that LR only permits two external editors when navigating from the Photo>Edit In... dropdown menu. I'd like to be able to select any of the standalone apps from that dropdown, but it appears that if limited to only two external editors, I would have to install-delete and reinstall another app to get that functionality.

I have many external editors installed, like PhotoShop (haha), Photomatix, DxO viewpoint, all Topaz add-ons except the last ones "impression" and "glow",  Corel, DxO Filmpack, Silver Efex Pro, Color Efex, 

No problem at all accessing them from LR, ... some of the Topaz add-ons, I have to access through the Fusion Express interface.
