Wouldn't this be rather a new version of the original text and worth  
to be reproduced as a whole? I don't know much about editorial  
practices on ancient authors, but in critical editions of newer ones  
this is a not so uncommon practice. Walter Benjamin' Gesammelte  
Schriften comes to mind, where there are some texts which are present  
in different versions as a whole.
