My question wasn't so much about system performance as it was my
performance in finding the right answer. They are different models to
achieve similar results.

That assumes that you always want one to be produced, but yes that would
probably work as well. They seem to want the ability to create their own
title, so that tends to take from teh singleton model. What I haven't
thought through is how to toggle different locations. I seem to have a
milspec that says one thing, but the reality of my samples is there is
some variation in location. I've not determined if this was a critical
design decision or someone messed up.
