Yes.  The values are supposed to stay the same, to retain compatibility.
Besides, you would need to re-design parts of the simulator to remove
the overlaps.

Definitely not.  The same 0xfxxx opcodes mean different things to sh3-dsp
and sh3e.
Using the same register number for fpscr and dsr is natural, since the same
opcodes are used to load/store dsr on sh3-dsp and fpscr on sh3e.
