What would you do when both eth and wlan are intentionally on the
same IP? There is collission.
Currently they are not, but eventually I will configure that way.

Err, there's a pretty basic misunderstanding there, I think. IP
addresses belong to interfaces. Each interface needs a distinct
address. That is unless and until you start getting into clever high
availability techniques and suchlike.

Basically, if you have more than one interface with the same address,
then only one of them can be online at any time.

In normal circumstances, it is an error to configure an address
collision.
