Merlin, I really do understand your argument for not repeating a ceremony which is a sacrament for the one individual.
But to get back to the original consideration, raised by the Church of Scotland, for a separate coronation in Edinburgh after independence.
There would be a splitting of a currently unified monarchy.
Perhaps that Church does not envisage including actual anointing and crowning. We shall just have to wait and see.
As a footnote: I believe the Queen is the Head of State in New Zealand in exactly the same way she is Head of State in Australia.
However, Australians are actuallly divided over that detail.
The ones who want to keep the monarchy, and have an Australian as head of state at the same time, maintain that the Governor-General is actually head of state, thus neatly having an Australian as our head.
Others, including myself, dispute it and insist the Queen is still head of state here and the G-G is her representative.
