The reality is that the "replaced" copy of any book is truly an arbitrary 
judgment of the submitter of that book perhaps confirmed by the validator.
Hence, it may or may not be.  In an ideal Bookshare world, both copies 
would remain available with some sort of notation indicating why the newer 
copy is a part of the database.
Sometimes it is easy to say something is better than another (a fair 
replaced by the excellent usually is), but when an excellent replaces an 
excellent, who knows as the parties involved may be looking at different 
elements of a book when making the call.
