On a purely mystical oriented situation I could see why there is some
A Strength item for example improves the body strength (muscles) while
those parts toughen up the person may lose agility as they get bigger and
more awkard.   Or say a Eloquence item might interfere with Inteligence
magic since that part of the brain that improes eloquent thoughts may shift
brain power from sheer normal thought.  Ok.  So that's not a articulate
answer but its a rough idea of why I could see some of the negation.  To me
its more a referee thing than X negates Y.
