Duplicate entity attributes being added by EntityAttribute metadata filter

Thanks, Scott. Splitting these into two separate MetadataFilter element blocks does, in fact, resolve it.

Does this lead to any less efficient processing? I'm guessing, even if it does, it's negligible.

Would you like me to file a bug? Can't promise that Jira and my screen reader will cooperate enough for me to get it into the right area, but I'm certainly willing to try.

Actually...I take it back, less a bug and more unanticipated behavior that would end up taking some work to avoid. The problem is it's really two sets of rules with the same attribute, and with one of them being totally generic, it results in both rules applying to the same entity.

I think splitting it into two separate filters would address that, and is probably the "canonical" answer as to how to avoid it. Overlapping "applies to" conditions pretty much gives that result by design.

I would still file it, but it's not a bug in the traditional sense.
