    So I've been noticing Teles that have two brass saddles for the D through high E but a steel saddle for the E/A.

    I'm assuming it is to soften the icepick highs but retain twang on the lowest strings?

    Probably. I think I'd go with one uniform material myself.

    Yes. The steel helps a little with definition and twang on the wound strings.
