bzimport set Reference to bz48830.

Other example: https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Git%2FConversion%2Fpywikipedia&diff=714194&oldid=713893 (not tag removal but tag property removal). The only real edit is at the bottom.

This is due to the merging of the 2 <b> tags. Currently it fails compare custom attributes like "style" when attempting to merge equal annotation sequences.

OK, then it's a different issue. Created a new one for it: #50050.
