>>It will certainly make for an advertizing advantage if WHDH-TV can
keep calling itself Channel 7, while WBZ, WCVB, and WGBH can't use
the channel numbers with which they've been identified for so long.<<

Yes they can.  The channel number that displays on an HD set is transmitted as part of the data stream and is not necessarily relevant to the channel of RF spectrum which the station is occupying.
