Finally got around to watching the Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz OAVs, and they're complete and total hogwash. Pretty, but horribly, horribly stupid. A meaningless re-tread of the same rattle-brained set of themes as the TV series, which at least had the virtue of simplicity and single-mindedness. None of the characters' motivations in the OAVs made any sense, and stuff seemed to happen just because they had finished storyboards available to animate from. One can't help but figure that randomly shuffling the storyboards wouldn't have materially affected the story.
