Use of Unknown Unknown for possible common father

Through DNA testing, I've discovered three (related) probable half-first-cousins once or twice removed.  There is no overlap with any person in my tree (and the two families are in quite different parts of the country). However, there is an illegitmate great grandfather on 'their side' and an illegitimate grandfather on mine - born two years apart.  

Would it be appropriate to use Unknown UNKNOWN for the possible father of two children, so that I can build the tree and (I hope, but don't expect) identify that our common ancestor is among the men who already have names, through DNA testing.

Or should I create a separate tree, but just note on the two profiles that they may be half-brothers?

Please do not create any Unknown Unknown profiles. We already have way too many on WikiTree. Your best bet is to add profiles to the existing tree with links in the bio on each profile to the other, possibly related profiles.
