Importing files from FS5

Hi all,

I imported some 4k footage (shot on an FS5). I realize that the same clips are appearing twice. For example:
Clip0001 is appearing in "XDCAM FORMAT PLUGIN" and "Quicktime Movie".

I revealed the file and realized that the files under "XDCAM FORMAT PLUGIN" are all MXFs and "Quicktime Movie" are all MOV (which I believe FCPX renamed the mxf to mov?)

In attempt in trying to keep the library smaller, may I delete all the duplicates from either "XDCAM FORMAT PLUGIN" or "QUICKTIME MOVIE"? Just want to find out what would happen if I delete the duplicates.
