You want identical channels to share the same callsign. This is *not*
the same thing as the channel name. Names are arbitrary and are only
for decoration.

You don't want to give HD and SD versions of the same channel the same
callsign, because--well--they're not the same channel. (There's a
reason why they get different DataDirect XML IDs.)
