(I'm not planning to do this, but) Are you saying if I'd dump the database, replace all "#000#" in CSNs with "#001#" (for example) in non contextCSN attributes, and also delete the #000# contextCSN, that entry will not re-appear? I read from your message that the #000# contextCSN is not replicated from remote, but computed locally from matching entryCSNs, right?

If the server clocks were tightly in sync, the owner of the CSN shouldn't be much of an issue, right (assuming no massive parallel updates happened)?
