[ModLib] Should Ibsen's Eleven Plays have a second Toledano number?

I note with interest that by common agreement we have three Tole  
numbers for Best Russian Short Stories:

Toledano number:   018.1 (missing Andreyev short story)
                                    018.2 (not in Toledano: Andreyev  
added; broken pagination)
                                    018.3 (not in Toledano: Continuous  

Note that two of the numbers have to do with pagination.

Yet there is just one Tole number for  Ibsen's Eleven Plays, G18.1  
(and that's not a type -- coincidentally, the tole number for both is  
18).  From Booknotes for that title:

This giant was printed from the plates of all three Ibsen volumes  
existing in the regular Modern Library series at the time, adding Peer  
Gynt. It was originally printed using the pagination of the original  
plates -- 3 to 305, 8 to 330, and 3 to 482. Sometime in the mid 1940s  
the book was reset with a single pagination sequence ending at 1185.

For consistency's sake, and because many people would consider them to  
be separate collectibles, should there be added a second number for  
this title to account for the repagination?
