Configuring a CFXEndPoint with multiple certificates

We are trying to make client requests to a SOAP web service using the Apache CXF component from a central Camel server. The endpoint
is always the same address, however, the owner of the endpoint wants a different SSL certificate depending on which of our high street stores
the request originates from.
We have created one CFXEndpoint per store, each with its own CxfEndpointConfigurer that sets up the conduit's TlsClientParameters with
the correct certificate store information. Then we've used a RecipientList in the route to dynamically select the correct endpoint with the
relevant certificate.
Unfortunately, because the endpoints all share the same address, the configureClient method on the CxfEndpointConfigurer is only ever
called once, even though each endpoint has a different instance containing different SSL configuration info. This results in all the endpoint
instances sharing the same certificate. As a test we changed the endpoint address for one of the CFXEndpoint instances and saw that its
related configureClient was called correctly.
So it appears that if CFXEndPoints have different addresses then their CxfEndpointConfigurer will be called, but if 2 or more endpoint instances
share the same address then the CxfEndpointConfigurer is only called once even though those configurers are different instances with different
Does anyone have any advice on how we can dynamically allocate certificates to the same endpoint based on message content (store id effectively)?
