I don't think that that is something which you can infer from any of the specification we have published? Implementations may perform what you do by assigning different authorities in the widget URIs for your (a) and (b) but essentially that is equivalent to have two widget packages (that happen to have the same content). If it really is one and only one widget package, then I'd expect it to have the same widget URI any time it is launched, and therefore if it has multiple copies running in parallel those would share the storage.
