Of course. But that's not a problem, because we save all the A's
changeset hashes
that we've seen during the replication. B's resulting hash would be
different, but we don't
care about it.

Also, since merging is commutative and associative we can reorder changesets
in any way, so interleaving changes in itself should be OK.
