Not at all.  If you remove the "afs/cell@REALM" key, the client knows
not to attempt to negotiate rxkad.  If you remove the
"afs-k5/cell@REALM" key the client knows not to negotiate rxk5.
If both keys exist, the client will negotiate kxk5 because it will
search for that one first.

When rkgk is available, there will be a new service key for that as well.
