[Design] Marking items "unread" when the same user changes them on another machine

I use Chandler on two different machines, but use the same server 
account to sync collections between the two. Every time I sync on 
either machine, I end up with a whole bunch of "unread" items that were 
edited on the other computer. I am beginning to wonder if it makes 
sense to show these as unread at all, since it is the same person 
(i.e., the same Cosmo account) making the changes.

Does anyone else run into this? It's not a bug, but a wrinkle in the 
existing design that makes my workflow more awkward than it needs to 
be, and I'd like to see how common it is before filing a request on
