My view is that connecting the same thing twice to another thing will *not* create a duplicate connection since the connection has already been made.  Think about this in the real world - what does it mean if I plug my guitar into my guitar amp with a cable - then plug it in *again* to the exact same amp input with another different cable!  I'm quite certain developers won't be confused by this, because I think it's an anomaly and doing nothing will be exactly what they expect.  We will need to add more details to the spec explaining this...
