It is indeed "unrealistic" (if you mean by that un-naturalistic or un-natlangy), but so is self-segregating morphology generally. So if your language is meant to resemble a natlang, don't make it self-segregating, or if you want self-segregating morphology, don't worry about unnaturalness - your language is unnatural anyway.
