Unbreaking and Mending are quite Overpowered already, but when combined together, its basically impossible to have your armor or tool break. I think making them exclusive would be a great balancing change for the New Combat Update. It would also make for a really interesting player choice, the would depend on the player's situation. For example, If the player has a Full Netherite set of Armor and Tools, their durability is already pretty strong, But with Unbreaking and Mending, it basically lasts forever. But if unbreaking and mending could not be combined, the player would have to think about their choice, "Well, Netherite is already pretty durable, but is expensive to repair, so I think Mending would be the better option, since it would be much easier to repair it.". Or maybe the player is pretty rich with resources, and may decide to enchant it with Unbreaking.
