Can you explain what is your use case ?

I have an application that dynamically loads 'plugins' as .so, in pure C
The loader is a linked-in driver (.so, erlang wrapper) that
dynamically loads other (.so, C plugins)

The only problem I found is that the VM dlopens() the driver without
might become a problem if other .so need symbols
