I wonder

a) whether it is useful to have different graph nodes for the same package.

This is about usability of the resulting graph, esp. since this is the
default graph output format. Does it help *users* for their analysis? Or
is this some *expert* insight?

b) how there can be different package objects for the same package

To my understanding, e.g. (gnu packages base) is loaded once, defining
package object abcd once and assigning it to a variable. All packages
referring to abcd use the some package object. So there should be only
*one* package object.
