Do we have an idea of how big this problem actually is? Has anyone gone through the last years of changeset uploads and checked how often the same user uploaded the same objects twice in a row, and how many duplicate objects resulted from that? I have a feeling that the problem might be less of an issue in practice, and perhaps not necessarily of the calibre that requires our best and brightest to spend their valuable time to solve. But I might be wrong, and of course it's the prerogative of our best and brightest to apply their time to any aspect of the API. I'm volunteering to research if it has any bearing on the discourse.
