HD Callsigns

I was talking to a friend in New York City about HD radio there.  He 
was telling me that WINS (AM) is on the HD-2 stream of one of the FM 
stations there.  He wasn't sure which one.

What he told me that was surprising is that the HD-2 stream has a 
totally different callsign than either WINS or the FM station.  We 
thought this unusual, neither of us thought that the FCC separately 
licenses the HD-2 and HD-3 streams, nor assigns them callsigns.

Can anyone shine any light on this situation?

If possible, please use the "reply to all" when replying to this

Thanks for your help.
