Again, I see no reason to ever have a TEMP1-1, when
TEMPn-N always does everything.

Yes.  Thats the picture.  We can leave TEMPn-N on in
ALL D700's all the time, because it is not normally
used.  But WIDE1-1 is only turned on when needed
because it is used frequencly by mobiles.

Dont see the need.  All D700's should have it all the
time, and if they dont, you cant use it anyway.  So
Id' rather not add to the chaos...
