is there any way to use these layouts together: us,bg,jp. some layouts, like us,ru,au or other combinations can be used together, according to various sources. however, upon trying to switch to us,bg,jp, I get an error: 

saturn_vk at sat:~$ setxkbmap -layout us,bg,jp -variant ,phonetic, -v -v

I know for certain that these different keys can be used together. A cheap hack is making one of the three inputs as a third level, however it's not pretty, and it's not anywhere near perfect. Is there another way?
