You really don't want a mirror of two striped arrays; you want a striped array of mirrors.

A striped array of mirrors is much more resilient to multiple drive failures than a mirrored set of striped arrays.  

See http://www.linux-mag.com/id/7928/?hq_e=el&hq_m=1151565&hq_l=36&hq_v=3fa9646c7f

What you're describing is RAID01, not RAID10.
