No such heuristic can prevent the problem, only make it a little less
likely and that only at the cost of hairing stuff up.

The OP and friends are making a specific infrastructure where the
extra hair is a win.   Great!   They (or someone) should build a tool
for that.   That part is perfectly fine, from my perspective.

Meanwhile, star-merge should remain honest and simple-minded because,
as I've said, it actually is a *terrific* semantic for potential
arch-based infrastructures that happen to be different from the one
the OP is working on.
