Well, the thing is, they are not neccessarily in conflict at all. So, in
computer A, a device that has 2 colors might also have 3 colors (no
conflict). But in computer B, this device can have only one color value
(conflict). 

I appreciate this is verging off-topic wrt to the thread, but I think it's
important to point out that we don't get "semantics for free" with RDF
interchange languages. In this case, being able to say anything about
anything isn't exactly a win.
