In theory. I see issues with that system when it comes to distribution, regarding different addons packaging different versions of the same library which would make that error pop up again (that, and having people download the same library multiple times and overwriting/ignoring feels redundant.)

Ideally, we would stop including libraries within addons, and instruct people to download and maintain them separately, but the average person can't read apparently, and that would cause a lot of headaches.

Alternatively, Blizzard could leave it, and continue allowing the same lib to be contained within multiple addons at once without throwing errors, but I imagine there is a reason why they made that change. If loading the same library multiple times doesn't cause any performance problems then we might as well advocate for them to revert that change.
