Het Alex,

There is no good way to do it currently except when you write your own XML-RPC method.
When inserting date through the XML-RPC the client needs to deal with this. That is to only good way of doing this.

This can't really be handled by the database structure because there isn't a default way of saying what is duplicated and what is not.
