My mistake, probably due to wishful thinking that this behavior be consistent across versions for non-DITA customizations (ie: it should just automatically be done by the product with no need to add additional script as far as I am concerned).
There is a bug report in our system related to this: PROD00025109. The validator does find these errors (F9 or upon saving) and there are no inconsistencies there as far as I know. However, if you want to aid the user in making sure there are no duplicates automatically, a similar scripting solution (to what we've implemented for DITA) could be created. I see that this limitation is still in the 6.0 release.
