In theory, but it is probably not that much of an issue for modern western armies, as they are small, conflicts likely to be either short or low intensity and logistics not much of an issue.

I doubt you will have to ship hundreds of millions of rounds to the other side of the world for millions of soldiers to use like in WWII.
Yes and if there is suddenly a major conflict, I am sure the enemy will be polite enough to wait for you to get ready. Months or years. It's best to not be ready for the worst case scenario, I am sure all will be ok in the end.
If major conflict arrived that suddenly, having two ammo-types is the least of your worries

That's the case with any war no matter its speed.

As was pointed out earlier, almost all armies use two or three types of small arms ammo already.

#1 - Handguns
#2 - Assault Rifles
#3 - Medium Machineguns
