+1 to what Raymond says here. Concerns regarding code duplication need to be weighed against the likelihood of that code changing in the future, and the impact on the readability of each copy of the code in isolation.

In this particular case, I think the likelihood of future change is low, and the likely negative impact of consolidation on readability is high, so it makes sense to me to defer consolidation until there's a clear benefit to sharing the implementations.
