If you don't use 2 discrete values then then how can you account for a mount that isn't perfectly polar aligned? If the angles aren't 90deg apart then it's a good sign your alignment is wrong.

Also I can guess that during calibration the PE of the RA axis would be so insignificantly small compared to the step sizes used for calibration that it probably doesn't matter.
