But here we run into a problem. Our universe may have had a beginning, but most cosmologists ( including Krauss, from what I can recall ) support the theory of 'eternal inflation'......that the substrata of the multiverse has always existed. So there was no 'creation'......just a local patch of expansion.

I like the postulation you proposed in answering Steve Zara's question. I don't think the proposition has been ruled out conceptualizing a bumping of dimensions in string theory that could create the space we propose as our unique universal space, that the fabric possibly already existed but the created space is a mirage of sorts and we can't see behind the curtain so to speak? It also brings to my mind the permanence of the anomaly over time with expansion of that said dimension and it permanent stability.
