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.
SAIs can do this. Ghosts can not.

It requires the ability to read and understand the format for memory storage, and write new ones, which implies all sorts of stuff that can't yet be done on ghosts - most notably probably creating undetectably false memories and building artificial ghosts that never were human in the first place.
