I agree this would be bad.
Wouldn't it be better (from an ease of maintenance POV) to just leave
all targets in /usr/lib alone and add a new one for /lib/libX.so
(i.e. stuff in /lib will have a separate copy in /usr/lib).
After all the point of this exercise is to save space in /, not adding
complexity in maintenance of /usr/lib.
