Transit passenges will know the flight by the respective partner's code.

...true, but it sure is annoying to scroll through the list when you are dashing to make a connection adn find out which gate your flights is leaving from and you look at the board, and it is full with the same flight but designated to 12 others!

That doesn't happen at most airports I know of. Airports with television monitor type departure boards typically list the flight just once, and the flight number just cycles through the various codeshare numbers. Not that hard at all to figure out. Even for those airports who list each departure separately, a quick glance at the board tells you that there is just one flight, because these departures are usually listed all together in one block, not spread out amongst other departures.

Imagine an announcement for a lost sheep jsut before gate closing: Would passenger X travelling on flight ... insert 15 callsigns here ... proceed immediately to gate X where you flight is closing.

..Ok, let's say that the traveler is not as savvy as us a.nutters here...he/she has to wait for the same flight to cycle through until his/her flight shows up. A lot of people don't always know that their flight is a codeshare, much less that they are multiple codeshare.
In a lot of the airports I have been to, flights are arranged by the chronological departure time, and thus, you have to scroll through the list (sometimes moving onto a different screen) before you find your flight.

At 2 seconds per display, that would take all of 16 seconds. Get real! This is not a major issue.
