I have done this and it has been recommended by the LoTW people (at 
least to me).  I have logs with callsign/# and callsign.  Some log 
the /# and some don't.  If I upload the same log signed both ways, 
then more will get a match.  I have a lot of logs with callsign/M  or 
callsign/CTY also.  I have uploaded both.  I don't see why it is "the 
worst workaround".
