Generally speaking, I would say that there isn't a reason. However, I 
mentioned it for two reasons - the first one is that the software 
currently allows this; the second one is that I had a problem with my 
bank recently - they duplicated a days' worth of transactions, then, 
instead of reversing the duplicates, they posted matching credits. Being 
able to match the duplicated transactions, the matching credits, and the 
original transactions all to the same register transaction just seems 
cleaner to me than entering all the duplicates and the matching credits, 
as none of those transactions actually existed anyway.....
