Whether differentially marked objects require raising is not a simple question for languages like Romanian. Kalin and Weisser (2019) use asymmetric coordination involving marked and unmarked objects to support the hypothesis that both classes (can) share the same position.

This raises doubts about the reliability of asymmetric coordination as a test for DOM (differential object marking) position in the language.
