What sort of scenario would this be?  Should we treat this as proper
usage, or as "don't complain if it breaks"?

Native compilation or no, I think that releasing a package A that puts
advice on functions outside of A is asking to lose.  I wouldn't
suggest we try to make it impossible to do that, but we should try to
keep the code in Emacs and ELPA free of such practices.
