Why is that trouble?

If precedence is a functional property, then all values for precedence are owl:sameAs [1].
So there can never be more than one precedence resource by definition;
sure, there can be multiple URLs for that, but that's no problem.

What would the inconsistency be (i.e., a concrete example)?
And why would that be RDF's fault, and not the data's?
