that is the use case, yes.

yes i agree that would be very confusing. but why, pray tell, would there be two
different definitions with the same number?

again, i'm not sure what scenario you're describing.

i was only describing a scenario where the patch is useful. allow me to try

with the current patch, if the user selects the entire org file and exports it,
there will only be *one* footnotes section, albeit the footnote references and
definitions (which aren't visible unless someone inspects the source) will be
annotated with the CUSTOM_ID property value should it be defined.

the *only* behavioural change that this effects is that the links (and backlinks
from the definitions to references) will continue to work properly even in the
event the user decides to merge the result of multiple subtree exports into one
single document. now whether or not someone wants to do that, is up to them, but
this (the patch in question) at least makes the links more robust.
