I for one don't think so. I looked at the page when I read the DCML
mentioning it - I didn't have time enough and yesterday I finished 
reading it.  
For one like me who can't read dutch, but would like to read about
their weekly, as I have an amount of friends there. (Hi all you dutch 
people!) For instance I had no idea that the dutch weekly has always 
been a weekly! Since 1952 when it started. In other places that has 
not been the case.

Here the monthly turned bi-weekly in 1956 and then in 1959 it became
weekly. In Germany those years are 1956 and 1957. 
So many more comics to read...
 - no wonder the Dutch weekly reached no. 2000 before we did and then 
our weekly used the story as their no. 2000, in an extra with the
making it not be in  the actual weekly no. 2000... 

So I didn't find it redundant at all. I even have an idea - when the
starts to make journalist write artist, put those on the page - maybe
advice journalists to find little pieces of interesting info on the
page for their 
articles. In 1999 SKO (Søren) did a page with articles about the 50th
of the danish weekly
BTW the Barks-illustration on the first
cover of the danish, swedish, norwegian and dutch weekly is from the
singing telegraph's story. I'll find the code now - WDC 90
