lib a ;
is interpreted as searched library named "a", that is you'll get -liba in
command line on linux, and a.lib on Windows. So your proposal conflicts with
the current semantics (proposed by you, as well). Using presense or absense
of usage-requirements in "lib" to determine if that's header-only library or
not does not seem reliable to me.
