I don't see how you'd be worse off.
Currently, if you hose dynamic linking, your /usr/libexec/getty and
/usr/sbin/sshd won't run, so I don't think you can say such a system
will 'autoboot unattended' in any case.
You would need to intervene, and boot -s and fix the ld.so (or whatever
you broke). The same is true with the new setup.
