No, that's not it. The phasing concern with stacking dissimilar 
antennas is that the "zero phase" point the antennas will be in 
different positions horizontally. That requires an additional section 
of "delay line" be inserted into the feed path to one or the other 
antenna to bring them into phase.

The phase difference can be modeled or it can empirically determined 
(see:  <>).
