She's not an "it"!

How does Xehanort know who the princesses are?Oh my... this is rather unfortunate, I go in depth to explain this and yet it seems as though someone didn't read my above post.
So ORIGINALLY, Ansem the Wise was responsible for starting up space paranoids and created an original password. Following that, Xehanort enters the picture and changes said password to the seven princesses of heart, as he by this point has usurped the original Ansem, took his name, castle and apprentices. He then reinstates the MCP and Sark, which is something Tron states, the Ansem he knew wouldn't do that. Xehanort at this point remembers his past and the princesses, not Ansem the Wise.
Also, Xemnas visiting the computer room DURING the battle of 1000 heartless has him enter the disc into the slot and then enter in a password with 6 boxes (not 7) that he fills in. Ansem the Wise had 6 apprentices, and their names fill in said slots, giving access to the rooms where the experiments were being performed (In other words, the cells where test subjects were held and experimented on).
If we go by your series of events, Xehanort could only know - Aurora, Snow White, Cinderella, and MAYBE Kairi - at that point in time. Alice, Jasmine and Belle were discovered years after Xehanort became Ansem/Xemnas. I don't even think Master Xehanort knew who the Princesses of Heart were, so even if you said that Apprentice Xehanort had Master Xehanort's memories, he wouldn't have known Alice, Jasmine and Belle.
Also, how do we know that the security cam footage of Xemnas entering the secret room was during the battle of 1000 heartless? I thought that was a flashback or old footage of Xemnas entering that location. It seems weird that Xemnas would 1) leave the massive battle that he caused to go talk to empty armor and 2) not teleport directly to the secret room while in the heat of battle.
