The other rationale for channel-specific handles is that more than one of the
merged calls can have the same phone number, if it's a multi-line phone. For
instance, if Rob and I are both in the same conference call, from different
lines in Collabora head office, other participants in the conference call will
see two distinct channel-specific handles, both of which will have the office's
switchboard phone number as their handle owner.
