You are cherry-picking here; cherry-picking is explicitly not tracked
in the history DAG.  Why is that a problem, in the context of this
discussion (merging from a release branch to the trunk)?

I think this is again because cherry-picking is not tracked, so bzr
doesn't "know" A is already there.  In a nutshell, when you
cherry-pick, you need to do your own bookkeeping.
