Redundancy is good as long as there's only one definition of "true". In this
case, having both OCR and barcodes is great so long as we're clear that the
OCR (that people can read) wins in the case of any conflict between the two.
(Sorry to state the obvious, but sometimes it's not obvious).

Sounds good to me.

Redundancy is good. Redundancy is our friend.
Redundancy is good. Redundancy is our friend.
Redundancy is good. Redundancy is our friend.
Redundancy is good. Redundancy is our friend.
Redundancy is good. Redundancy is our friend.

At some some degree of redundancy is good. ;-)
