Why is this relevant unless you're trying to ED to two schools?

I know of at least one CCN school that makes their ED list available to other schools, even if you weren't accepted ED and were released from the contract. So yes schools will be able to see that you EDed elsewhere if they wish.

The one circumstance where I'd be really curious would be if you ED'd to UVA with numbers so good that you're virtually a lock (e.g. so good that you'd almost certainly be accepted for RD, never mind ED). In that case, the other schools have got to know that accepting you isn't going to do anything other than hurt their yield rate.
I don't know how much I really believe in the prevalence of "yield protection", but that seems like the one case where it might legitimately come into play.
