I don't know how exactly Freeswitch internaly works, so thank you, 
Anthony, for explanation.

I agree.

One possibility is to introduce mandatory unique identifier for each gw 
in config.

Removing doesn't help me :-)

The main reason I talk about it is that I don't want to stop calls 
during profile reload/restart/etc. Because it practicaly eliminates 
possibility of sharing one profile between more users.

If there is/will be a way how to reload/restart sip profile and keep 
current calls intact, I don't care about I could not setup new ones 
until reload/restart finishes.

The same way I have tried to outline I use lcr module from OpenSER 
And, from my opinion, even Asterisk doesn't interrupt calls in case of 
chan_sip reload.

All at all, I just want to manipulate with sip gws and keep calls alive 
:-) If you be so kind, explain to me please, if it is possible to 
incorporate it into Freeswitch or not. I have no idea :-)

BTW: If this feature breaks Freeswitch clean desing (or generally you 
see it as ugly hack) it is better - from my point of view - to leave 
thing as they are...

Thanks once more, Anthony, for your clarification!

Bets regards,
