The thing is, only the GUI can really know what's a conflict.
xfconf-query is unable to check them and it's normal. Especially things
like Alt/Meta are related to how X configures the modifier, and, I
think, they can't exist at the same time on the same key. So they won't
really conflict, but the best way to be sure is to keep a consistent
config wrt. keyboard model/layouts and assign every shortcut from the
GUI interface.

Then there shouldn't be any need to re-set them (besides the GTK+
problem with shortcuts, which are not propagated when one changes the
mapping, for example a Ctrl+A shortcut on an azerty keyboard will stay
on the physical A even when you change the mapping to be a qwerty and
the logical a becomes a logical q).
