No, a track can only have 1 nop (when there are no locations). A track  
is a SINGLE input/playlist entry. It's just that this entry can have  
multiple locations. This is designed for rollover in case one of the  
URIs is not available (in shoutcast and other modules, we usually turn  
these things into nodes with subelements.

Perhaps it's time to implement "rollover" uri's in meta for instance?  
Shouldn't be too hard to make use of those from the core. Shouldn't be  
too hard I think.
