On what grounds?
The equivalent case for inheritance is an error:
regression=# create table foo (a int);
regression=# create table bar () inherits (foo);
regression=# alter table bar inherit foo;
ERROR: relation "foo" would be inherited from more than once
(Your example purporting to show the contrary contains a typo.)
If there's a reason why this case should act differently from that
precedent, you haven't shown it.
