Yes, intl is meant to replace idn and to make it backwards-compatible a couple
of functions are exported under the same name, causing the conflict.

That's up to whoever is behind libphp-simplepie. -idn also provided a few
other functions which -intl doesn't.

No. It's a runtime conflict and therefore policy's "don't add a Breaks/Conflict"
However, the conflict was meant to be handled by the extensions manager, but
