Perhaps not a conflict, exactly, but certainly unintended consequences. I do a lot of auto exposure bracketing. In the past with my DSLRs, I've always preferred the camera to shoot and display my bracketed exposures in under>meter>over order. It's always seemed more logical to me than the default order of meter>under>over. One of the advantages of mirrorless is the ability to apply settings to live view (setting d9). This provides a WYSIWYG view during composition. The problem arises when you have setting e7 set to under>meter>over and d9 set to ON. In this case, your WYSIWYG live view represents your lowest EV exposure in the bracketed set, instead of the OEV metered view, which is considerably less than ideal, in my opinion.

There doesn't seem to be a way for these two settings to coexist and give an experience similar to the view from an optical viewfinder in a DSLR. There are only two choices, don't apply settings to live view, or use the default bracketed order of meter>under>over. One or the other, not both. I've chosen the latter, because it is the least compromising, but I just wonder if I'm missing something, and perhaps there is a better solution.
