A possible rainbow coalition on the Hill

Is it possible, practical or desirable that the ‘centre parties’ could now form a rainbow grouping that together would have 32+ seats at Stormont and thereby be the biggest grouping?

The SDLP, being the biggest party within that group could propose the first minister and the deputy first minister would come from the DUP on this occasion.

The ‘Rainbow Group’, the DUP and Sinn Fein would have approximately the same number of ministers with no one group having overall control and parties would have to work together and strike deals with each other to advance their various causes.
