How about this?

For each unique application, create one binding directory for all *MODULEs that ever need to be "bound by copy" (call it MODULES) and one binding directory listing all *SRVPGMs (call it SRVPGMs).

Then, refer to either the MODULES or SRVPGMS, or both, as needed, either in the H-spec via the BNDDIR parameter, for ILE RPG IV, or via the CRTxxx command, or using the technique of "embedded" commands in the source, such as with Alan Campin's COMPILE command, for all other ILE languages.

Creating many separate binding directories, one for each *PGM or *SRVPGM, only creates additional objects (of type *BNDDIR) that also need to be maintained.

That's my opinion. What do you think?
