Indeed I had two or more items with identical names in those channels which is possible but not good practice in MCMS.

In MCMS it would break the link management feature and could cause some API calls to fail (GetByPath, GetByUrl).

In MOSS 2007 this is now no longer possible. Great! But it would be nice if the migration tool would have a feature to automatically correct this by (e.g.) adding a suffix to the item or something like this.

Now I will have to go through all these items and will have to do this manually – or I will have to write a script to do this.
