I like both these ideas, but the trouble is Father Inire says in his
letter that Agia remains a plausible commander "as long as the mirrors
of the caller Hethor remain unbroken" (Citadel, XXXV). "Unbroken" does
rather suggest that these are the old-fashioned, rigid,
seven-years-bad-luck mirrors that we know today rather than fabric.
Inire -could- have meant "unbroken" in the sense of "still working", but
it seems unlikely.

Since apports appear out of the space -between- mirrors, rather than out
of the mirrors themselves, I suppose they don't actually have to be that
