I think you're out of luck - there's no way for a job ad to reference
another job ad.

My best suggestion is to run it as a DAG of 10 jobs, split into 1 job
and then 9 jobs that depend on the first job. Let the first job run on
either Linux or Windows, and then have the post script or pre scripts
set the requirements for the next 9 jobs to run on the same platform.
