My recollection is that POSIX doesn't specify the effect of using both
-n and -i (-I, -L) at the same time.

I don't currently know of a commonly accepted practice for the
combination either.   However, if it turns out that there is a
commonly accepted practice (for example if 3 or more otherwise
unrelated Unix implementations do a consistent thing in this case),
then we should probably follow it.

Could you collate the evidence as to what the common behaviour is in this case?
