You approach this from a technical perspective, it is not. It is a creative 
and informational aspect with implications. For example imagine a timeline 
where you can visually see that the same image is projected twice, imagine 
a timecode which marks A, B, C for duplicated images. Potentially the 
ability to mark a frame as a 2 or 3. Perfect alignment between tracks (not 
the nasty subframe stuff we discussed before on the bugtracker where 
Cinelerra is famous for and gets an entire project out of alignment).
