Surf & Turf Broth?

Is there some unwritten rule about not combining flavors for one's stock or broth? I recently had just a few chicken bones and a few shrimp shells, so I threw them in together to make an impromptu broth for wonton soup. Tastes more than fine, but it still felt wrong . . .

Anybody else combine various bones, or am I right that you ideally oughtn't mix them?
