Ah, now I see that this is what Alan was referring to. What I didn't
like about Rafael's suggestion was the idea that the linker would
special-case the sections based on what symbols were defined in them.
If his suggestion was simply to override any definitions with the
linker's own definitions, then my objection was misfounded.
