N2K bundling with low draw 12V circuits

I need to bundle an N2K backbone with several 12v lighting circuit cables (non-twisted pr) drawing max 2A. Is this a no-no or not a problem on switching the 12v on/off? Do they require twisted pair in this application?

The N2K needs to go up the mast, so would be in the proximity of 12v cables in all boats that have this.

I believe that most N2K cable has shielding built in. Would that not be for something just like this?
