My experience with the R16 is that the frameline was consistently off between forward and backward runs, (about 1/4 of a frame off during the backwards pass), so when double exposing forward & backwards, you get an annoying hard line in the middle of the frame. I assume this means that if you shoot your entire film backwards, it would be no problem (you could simply adjust the framer in the projector), but if you plan on intercutting it with footage shot forwards, then you'd have to reframe during projection. I haven't tried it, but that's what I'd conjecture from the failed attempt at in-camera forward/backward double exposure.
