I do not know the answer to this. I would guess that since the values are not stored the same what that the field names might not matter as much.
There is one way to find out. Create 2 fields with the same name in different blocks and see what happens. If you update one and the same value appears in the second one then you cannot do it. On the other hand, if you can update the two fields with different values and they retain the correct values then you can.
Like I said, I’m not sure. I believe that the fields are save to a specific block ID on the page. This makes each field unique to that ID. If you’re not seeing issues in the editor then you probably won’t see issues elsewhere.
