Except that at that point, if you think it might conflict with Lady X's
device that much, a simple check by your local herald (either directly
or by him/her asking for assistance in checking) will show whether or
not it *will* conflict before it even gets sent up to kingdom level.
Adn then if it does, you send the not-conflicting version.  And if it
doesn't, you send the original...

Besides, you could have "if this conflicts with someone's device,
change it to a green field."  What if that won't clear it?  "...or add
a bordure" and if that won't work either? "...or add a chief" etc. etc.
If that starts, people end up sending in a list of elements they like,
wishing for the kingdom heralds to choose a compatible device out of
the disparate elements, and that won't be a Good Thing, trust me... ;-)
