Yes, these packages conflict.
From a yum/rpm point of view, they technically don't conflict with each other.
That's why yum happily tries to install them both, and fails.
Maybe this package should be marked as x86_64 only if it cannot be installed?
Good point. This is a rel-eng issue so we don't need to track it in bugzilla - ticket filed here:
