Default 485 as Primary applicant and then 476 as secondary?

My wife currently holds a 485 visa which she got after her Masters in Australia. Her visa will expire early next year. I currently hold a 476 visa and still have the entire 18 months of it left.
Since 189 invitations are uncertain right now, I am trying to prepare for the worst-case scenario.
The current rule treats 485 and 476 in the same bracket and you can be granted any one of them in a lifetime. So if you hold a 485 right now, you can't apply for a 485 or 476 again in the future.
In this case my wife is currently a primary holder of 485 visa but can she be added to my 476 visa as a dependent later on when her 485 visa expires?

Another simpler example question (if my questions sounds confusing due to two visas - 476 and 485) would be - Can a current 485 visa primary holder be a secondary 485 visa holder in the future?

I strongly suggest you to contact registered MARA agents

Good Luck!
