So which is it?  If conflicting roots break things, then the problem
*is* insoluble.

Remember that RFC2826 only discusses the issue of conflicting roots - there's
no technical reason not to hand-wave and aggregate all identical roots
under one "naming authority" (totally unspecified - it's *WHATEVER METHOD*
got all the identical roots to *be* identical, even if it was 5 kegs of
beer at a trade show ;)
