[Mikrotik] Combining 3 APs PPPoE servers

I have three APs on 120 sectors.  Each are the same wireless config, short
of different SSIDs.  Each AP has its own PPPoE server and hence database.  I
would like to combine these for simplicity in creating users and redundancy
should a customer see two APs.  The three APs go into my bridged backbone
through a 493ah "switch".  Note the hpol Pac antennas up there seem awfully
wide as most if not all stations off these APs not only see a second AP, but
see it at near the same RSSI.

I was thinking about creating a new bridge on the 493ah for those 3 ports
(for the 3 APs) and putting the PPPoE server on there or add another
routerboard at the base but I wanted to see if there was a clever idea about
combining the three before making these changes.

I believe with my idea I just need to simply add ether1 to the bridge
interface (as the wlan1 is in bridge1 for WDS capability) then do the work
at the switch level making it a painless transition - maybe seemingly
