2014 iMac 5k and Daisy Chaining Monitors?

I have my PC and Mac as separate setups currently and I was thinking about unifying everything on one desk.

Right now for the PC I have 2 Dell Ultrasharps daisy chained over displayport but my ideal situation is to keep the larger one, then have my 27" LED Cinema display go to the right with the 5k iMac to the left.

So the PC would have the larger Dell, and LED Cinema, and with a flip on the Dell to the other DP I could get the iMac with both those monitors.

Is this possible currently?  I found some pretty old forum posts saying the iMac couldn't do daisy chaining over DP even with Dell monitors that otherwise can do it.

And question 2 is more LED Cinema display specific, will it work as a daisy chained monitor even with a PC?  Because even that would be acceptable since I'd have 2 monitors for either system while in use.
