Summary: It is shown that each Banach space of analytic functions with continuous point evaluations on an open set $\Omega \subset \mathbb C^d$ possesses a discrete dominating set. This result enables us to prove the existence of spanning holomorphic cross-sections for Cowen--Douglas tuples $T = (T_1, \ldots , T_d)$ of class $B_n(\Omega)$, generalizing a previous result of Kehe Zhu for single Cowen--Douglas operators. As a consequence we extend representation and classification results of Zhu to the multivariate case.
