I wonder why a conflict exists when two keybindings are possible.

One of the has an active handler, whereas the other one doesn't.

Couldn't Eclipse be more intelligent and simply ignore the command withoun any active handler?

This is just a suggestion.

If I don't create context, it is very easy to have conflicts with other unused commands, some of the predefined in the workbench.

keybindings are more stable then whether the specific command handler is 1) handled or 2) enabled. CTRL+C is always copy (well, almost always Smile If you try and set CTRL+C to Exit, that's a bad deal, and since the consequences are dire we report binding conflicts eagerly.

That being said, in an RCP app you can either add to the main window context, create your own off of that context and activate it from your app, or create your own scheme that contains only your bindings (and then you have complete control over what is in there).
