For me I don't understand the need to have repeating placeholders in a string that you do not want to replace with a value. "When we use long varying strings with placeholders some of them are repeated and we cannot use %SCANRPL." What's the purpose of having same named placeholders that you don't want to replace with the same value? If they need to be different then use a different placeholder name.
