Matter of definition. Data exists once and is presented twice. Kinda like normalisation :-P

Bad choice of words. But if your patch is applied, I can't see a diff of your changes. And it's still logged as one ad and one remove. so I can't easily diff between tomorrows version and one two steps back.
And since there really is no gain, imnsho, I see no reason to take away that ability.
