autoyast - multiple paths ?

Attempting to create autoyast setups using for SLES 10 and OES2
From the docs I can see, I think, how to get a value and use it, using
path to determine where its set. However in practice with some values,
hostname for instance, I want to get the same string from the user and
set it in multiple places. Can you have multiple path elements eg

Enter Host Name

Also is there a way to take the string and use it to form part of
another value, I’m thinking of things like <proxy_context>
where the object dn is typically cn=OESCommonProxy_[hostname].[server
