I don't think developers are likely to care much about the identity of records,
but I do think they care about the memory footprint of the browsers they work
in.

For what it's worth, the old queueing algorithm specified WebKit's behavior
with regard to identity (see "record" and "recordWithOldValue"):

(not surprising, since I think I wrote that text).
