Does any of the published material discuss merged uploads? This could be either one or more Xoxes going about their business for a while and then collating in their new experiences with the original, or separate ghosts engaged in symbiogenesis by digitally combining to form a new being.
I don't recall the exact reference, but I remember a detail that AIs can spawn lower level spinoffs of themselves for that purpose. There's apparently a film that's all the rage of an SAI's LAI agents returning to find their parent dead or missing.
