Only in the sense that, ultimately, all actions are unambiguous,
insofar as that they have a concrete end result.
OTOH, the action may well have non-obvious consequences, which is
probably a more useful classification than whether or not it is

If you want the version which comes first in the mapset search path,
then it's unnecessary to specify the mapset. The current mapset
doesn't have to be the first one in the search path; that's just the
default if you don't specify an explicit search path.

You are free to set an explicit search path containing only the
current mapset (and not PERMANENT), but that isn't the default. The
default is the current mapset followed by PERMANENT. If you set a
search path which only contains one mapset (e.g. the current mapset),
you will never get more than one match for an unqualified name, and
thus will never see the warning.
