Follow-up Comment #2, bug #51220 (project findutils):

The example doesn't seem to show that -I is incompatible with -n.  Indeed 'one
two three four' isn't split into four arguments, but the documentation for -I
says that it won't:

-I replace-str
       Replace occurrences of replace-str in the initial-arguments with
       names  read  from  standard input.  Also, unquoted blanks do not
       terminate input items; instead  the  separator  is  the  newline
       character.  Implies -x and -L 1.
