If you use oor:op="fuse" instead of "replace", an already existing set 
element will not be replaced completely.  Only the props given 
explicitly here will take on their new values.  Any other props ("Pos", 
"Size", etc.) will keep the values already set (if any).  (The latter 
may or may not be a problem for your actual use case.  There's 
unfortunately no way to add the set element with the given props only if 
the set element does not yet exist, and otherwise leave it completely
