OK, I see your point, but what I was actually trying to say was that I don't
think you can presume that.

I think that DWJ is too good a writer to expunge something from one book, only
to reintroduce it in a sequel.  Especially when the cut is only nine words.
Unless there is some other, really good reason for this.

Just my opinion.  I don't think there's much point in continuing to speculate...
