Maybe I'm missing something, but I was looking at this from a user  
perspective and I found the case with mutually exclusive options to be  
easier to understand and use. Also if they are mutually exclusive, one  
can implement an option selection mechanism based on taking the last  
specified option and ignoring the others.
