Why would it be a matter of correctness? A deltification should work
no matter what form the base text -- or target, for that matter -- is
stored in before the deltification.

It may be that it does nothing, if (say) the target is already
deltified. Or maybe it fully undeltifies the target and then
redeltifies, which is an awful lot of work... But correctness??

You're scaring me :-).
