We don't, at this time, support having OSPF enabled on more than one
interface for any given IP address - a pre-requisite for OSPF over such
'unnumbered' interfaces. You'll have to ensure each interface has a
unique identifying address.
I'm not 100% sure, but using PtP addressing and ensuring that at least
the remote, peer IP is unique for each PPP address, /may/ work - even
with a shared local IP.
Full unnumbered support is something we'd like to have, but I'm not
aware of anyone who is working on it.
