Probably Bruce wants to express that there can be only one sound server active 
at a time, and in this case a better wording (that doesn't have to be changed 
when someone invents Yet Another Sound Server) would probably be:

The NAS server cannot run simultaneously with other sound servers, such as MAS 
or JACK.

BTW, what is the general XML policy or canonical wording for such "conflicts"? 
On  AFPL Ghostscript page, the explicit "Conflicts" word is used as a section 
heading. Here the words "is not compatible" are used inside a <note> tag.
