I have always presumed that loading of DLLS would be under the control
of the user program so that he could take appropriate steps to

a) be sure that loading/unloading of DLLS wasn't occurring while
in the midst of serialization stomething.

b) loading/unloading DLLS occurred one at at time.

It seems to me that this is enough to avoid problems.
Am I missing something?
