No.  There can be multiple rules with the same number.  If you run
multiple "ipfw add" commands with the same number, they are stored
(and executed) in the order in which they were added.

Having multiple =identical= rules with the same number doesn't make
too much sense, since -- as you noticed -- the ones after the first
will never match (unless the rule has a "count" action, in which
case all of the identical rules will match).
