Sadly no, they are overlapping :( There are 4 cases I think, for each 

- PK exists in A and B, and they have the same associated data (=no 
action needed)

- PK exists in A and B, but they have different associated data (=conflict)

- PK used to exist in A at the time of the "duplication" but it has been 
deleted, while in B it still exists (=PK should be deleted from B too)

- PK has been added to A or B after the duplication (=PK should be 
inserted into the other DB too)
