There can be.   I have, on occasion (not in bash - I don't
write bash scripts) had a need to redefine one of the standard
commands, while executing a particular function (which calls other
more standard functions which run the command) - and define the
same command differently when running a different function, which
runs the same standard functions running the command, but in a
different way.

Sure, that's the conditional definition I talked about in my first reply.
The OP indicated that that wasn't his goal.
