Yes, this seems correct based on my understanding of the process of
writing tombstones.

I think you are correct; the only thing that matters is whether the
tombstone exists or not. There may be something I am missing about why
the very-unlikely-to-be-identical value should be considered a merkle
tree failure.

Seems related to this issue, fwiw.

I think it's a bug.
