Do you mean that you use the PAS for your anchoring on multipitch routes?
This is the same PAS that would be girth hitched into your harness as your attachment to the anchor?

If so, could you explain a mechanism to me of quickly escaping a belay that doesn't involve using a sling, cordalette or rope to construct a seperate master point? If you've used a PAS that is girth hitched to your harness as the connector between pieces of gear, I honestly can't see how you'd get out of the system without creating another anchor matrix, or cutting the PAS from your harness.
