What happens if the next straight shot from the dailies code is at the
alternate code you chose?  Seems like a lot of trouble to make sure
you don't duplicate this code in the alternate if the next straight
shot happens to be at that offset code.

Just record enough handle on either side of the alt shot so that
doesn't happen, (I'm assuming you mean cueing over code breaks).

Also E-slate the alternate at the head over black to alert the editor
this is definately repeated timecode duplicated elsewhere and if
applicable, at what speed, composition, color, etc.

Having worked in that market (where you are), I recall the editors in
the area are used to working this way and seemed to be pretty
organized such that it was clear (in their notes, for instance) that
there may be discontinuities in the code.  They deal with it.
For instance, if you're matching to an offline cut, they've already
factored in the possiblility of an alt and may make the decision in
final assembly.
