I see. It's just a bit weird that we're marking this from clone site
when it's an issue which is specific to throttling. The thing is
depending on how bio clone is used, it could misbehave in the other
direction (bio not accounted at all). What we want to know is whether
a bio has been previously accounted or not, rather than whether a bio
is a result of splitting. I think it'd be better to track that
instead.

Thanks.
