There are 2 reasons that symbols with the same meaning will repeat. The 
first is due to completion of rows and columns (symbol key validity).  
The second is due to variation compatibility.

1) Symbols repeat for the completion of rows and columns.  Because of 
column 2, row 5 is valid.  Because row 5 is valid, all valid columns 
must have a symbol in that row.

2) Variation compatibility. The symbol grid below has a variation. The 
variation (04-01-010-02) uses all 16 rotations, so it requires that 
(04-01-010-01) has all 16 rotations as well.

For the ISWA 2010, these repeated symbols are valid and will stay in the

That would be fine, however you may encounter data that contains the 
symbols you do not show.
