Thanks for the reply Francis. The particular issue you mention is actually a separate problem which we identified in the context of string-vs-type ambiguity in some grammars (viz. ERG):

	_week_n_1_rel := non_day_diadic_nonprop_rel & day_or_week_rel.

	week1 := n_-_c-week_le &
	 [ ORTH < "week" >,
	   SYNSEM [ LKEYS.KEYREL.PRED "_week_n_1_rel",
	            PHON.ONSET con ] ].

The problem is that the presence of both 'string' and 'type' versions of orthographic duplicates causes indeterminacy when round-tripping through MRS (which by definition does not maintain the distinction). We concluded that the world would be a better place if this practice were abolished.

Perhaps we should not have two "_look_v_1_rel"'s with different
argument signatures in the first place?  I though that this was
officially discouraged, ...
