Only if (a) the combined schema insisted on using the same names as is
*and* (b) insisted on "GI only" as the only basis for discrimination.

To enable (a), one has merely to abandon (b).  It's a fallacy anyway
(deriving from the more basic fallacy that vocabulary specific names must
somehow always occur in syntactically visible positions.)
