I don't think so! Bruno's argument would still work for
indistinguishable particles one we figure out that particles are NEVER
isolated entities. Their properties follow only from their possible
interaction values. Have you noticed that in GR there are no particles,
only events? We can observe an electron here and an electron there and we
cannot distinguish between them, they are fungible, and yet they are not
"in the same place". Maybe the exchange symmetry is hidding under what
Bruno is considering, re the non-cloning theorem.
