So I think you may be right here, but unless there's some significant
disadvantage to Conflicts in this case, I'm tempted to leave things as
they are, since I know Conflicts should be safe.

However, if there is a significant advantage, then I can take some time
to go back through policy and the relevant code, to try and convince
myself that Breaks would also be OK.
