You don't explain why those rules are already there and who is adding those.

There are many reasons why iptables-restore may fail to load a rule, not only
duplicates. It may lead to having load an inconsistent rule-set. I'm reticent
to add this feature, it's resolving a very specific use-case in which some
important information is missing.
