It has always been my opinion that when any of the "extra" channels on a 
Dial() don't answer it should be treated as if they never happened. 
Thus, only the answering channel would have the ability to change 
upstream variables. Of course if nobody answers and the dial plan writer 
wants to pass information about that up the ladder, this functionality 
wouldn't help too much...
