Question about unevenly-sized battery banks

With the modern distributed-power chargers (I have a Xantrex TrueCharge 20A) is it acceptable to have unevenly-sized banks?

I would like to have two group 24s on one bank, and a group 27 on the other.

I currently have two 24s and two 27s which are on their last legs. To save some weight I would like to ditch one of the batteries. (adding a 60lb outboard to the stern rail so losing one battery would keep her on her lines)

Mostly daysailing so don't need a ton of capacity.
