Ian,
The situation with mapping is that you will indeed render the border just 
once with a path element and one stroke, but you also need to use the same 
border at least twice to define the border of the two regions which share 
that border to allow for hit testing to allow for rollovers and clicks on 
the regions so as to bring up views of supplemental metadata. So, in fact, 
the common case is that the shared border is used three times.
