Yes, I think that it's best not to have any duplicate definitions.

I'm planning to change mkdoc to check the .txh files much more strictly
than it does now, and then change the files so that mkdoc won't complain
about them.  By strict checking I mean that each node should have all
the usual subsections in proper order and properly formatted, unless
there's something to tell mkdoc that a node doesn't have a return value
(if it's describing a variable) or that a node is completely free text.
Is it OK to use @mkdoc for this kind of thing?
