That's about the only way I can think to get there.  QSynth lets you run 
multiple synth engines on tabs (the icon is a + in the lower left corner), 
and...  Yes, each engine comes up in QJackCtl with a separate set of outputs.

Off hand, doing it some other way with just one synth engine forking to 
multiple outputs would require you to roll up your sleeves and hack some 
source code.  It just isn't built to do that in its current state.  Nothing 
else is either.  I didn't spend a vast amount of time tinkering, but I don't 
see any other viable approach off hand.
