I'm not sure about that since replication isn't really a word, although it
has crept into the English language. I look at it from a results POV rather
from an action POV. Replication is about producing copies of the same
result. You can do a similar action multiple times (duplication) and produce
a dissimilar result. That wouldn't be replicating anything, it would just be
a duplication of effort.
>From a database POV (which is how I know what little I know about
replication since I was involved in a project to do this in the early 1990s
before the whole db replication thing got so commonplace) the word
replication means not that anything was done more than once, but that the
one result was propagated to multiple places. So it seems to me replication
is about multiple result instances, not multiple action instances.
