Which is fine except that it proves Catlady's point, such an interpretation is going to make both themes the same.

Oops, I just looked back through the thread and noticed that I already raised this issue re both themes being about duos. So I won't rehash.
But I think I see your (and others) point a bit better now. The intent is different, but our super-flexible interpretation of themes means that intent goes out the window and does indeed make these two effectively the same. I did have another idea the other day, now I just have to remember what it was...
