Interesting question and best advice I can give for your understanding is to seek out footage of the footwell of a rally car while the driver is doing a handbrake turn.

Both feet are already busy
You can steer with only one hand thus letting the other one operate gear and handbrake !

Equally a footbrake of two sides where say left side oeprated rear and right side operated front will make finesse difficult and if required heel-and-toe impossible. Left/right split braking would be a better choice if you wanted to do that anyway

As already said, best solution if required is to have bias shift by button or a seperate button to trigger and lock the rears. But suggest unecessary as with a lock-on handbrake it's easy to handle brake, clutch, gear, throttle and handbrake mid corner with the current pedals and appendages
