Isn't there the consensus that the c) thing will cause the same sound,

that it's allowed by the MIDI specs to do this without using a sustain
pedal, but by using a sequencer were it's edited that the same note will
overlap? It might be useful to produce some random phasing synth sound,
but there's absolutely no natural instrument were this could happen.
By the way, I right now played a very good DX7 Mark III sound, hold the
sustain pedal and played the same notes again and again and the sound
became bad. I dunno, but I hope that for a Clavinova a Mark sound even
would be "reset" when the sustain pedal is hold and the same notes will
be played again and again.
Anyway, "except for that this is an absurdity that could only happen by
accidental programming", it's not an absurdity, it's possible to do this
by using any sequencer, but most times it's unwanted, because it seldom
sound good and it never sounds natural. Some sequencers have functions
that allow to delete "same notes".
