HD Callsigns --> Question re AM HD

With all this discussion of HD the last couple of days, I'd like to ask a
question of the experts. Will *all* AM stations be able to broadcast in HD?
I am thinking specifically of the situation between WCRN 830 and WEEI 850,
and to a lesser extent between WBZ 1030 and WBIX 1060. Here we have powerful
stations that are very close on the dial to each other. We all know the
racket that WBZ makes from 1010 to 1050 kHz, but what if WBIX were also
transmitting HD. Would it affect WBZ's HD signal, or vice-versa? (I doubt
WBZ would let it). And WCRN and WEEI are even closer on the dial...would
their HD signals interfere with each other or with the analog service?

It's actually "WVEI-FM and WVEI HD1" that they've added to the ID.
