As the Oxford Shakespeare is not a conflated text (I can't remember
whether it's based on Q2 or F, but it's the opposite of the Arden 2 !)
the chances are that he didn't follow it at all ...
An "uncut" conflated version would, after all, be one which had never
existed in Shakespeare's time, regardless of almost any theory one holds
about the text.
