It depends. Sometimes it's best to add a comment on an existing sequence,
especially if the conjecture is sufficiently certain. (We don't have a
sequence of even perfect numbers for this reason -- it's probably just
A000396.) But sometimes not-yet-proved-to-be=duplicates may be appropriate.
What do you have in mind?
