Um, you have to use addsite to add new sites...  So, "don't use
addsite" seems a bit strong.

I don't believe this is correct.  It is certainly true that it doesn't
buy you much in terms of reliability or failover if you have multiple
RO instances on a single server, but there is no prohibition in the
protocol or implementation that would limit this.
