AFAIK there can not be more than one multiplex one frequency except if
the polarization differs. That makes me think that the divisions are
unnecessary. Instead I'd like to see the orbital position in there for
DVB-S somehow like that:

(orbital_position << 22) | (polarization << 20) | frequency_mhz
