When there are potential conflicts between arguments set by the main parser and those set by a subparser, I often recommend giving the sub ones different "dest" parameters.  Then you can reconcile the different values after parsing.

There's nothing wrong with a bit of post-parsing value checking and adjustment.  The primary purpose of the parser is to identify what the user wants, and secondarily to give useful help and error messages.
