This refers specifically to your last statement. It is true that between
the end points, each of the _component connections_ of a virtually
signal is of fixed bandwidth, but one could always change the bandwidth of
the virtually concatenated signal itself (in discrete increments), by adding
removing one or more of the component connections. So in that case, there
would be no need to tear down the entire signal and establish a different
