Namenode image can be written to S3 ?

Explorer

 We would like to add a S3 folder as one of the data directories for the Name Node (in addition to the local directories). However, when we provided a S3 folder path via the Cloudera Manager interface, the validation failed and it indicates that the same cannot be done. Searching around indicates that this is possible only if S3 is configured as the default filesystem for HDFS, which we do not want. Can someone please suggest how we can add a S3 folder to which the Namenode image can be written to? Thanks
