I agree with you that hybridization is unlikely, but if it does happen it will be indistinguishable from an actual integration. Among other things, we are interested in mapping low-abundance integrations, so if we aren't able to get the verification sequence on every read, we will likely need to go in and verify a subset of integrations manually, which may not be possible if an integration is present in only one cell for example.
