I should add that of course it is technically possible to implement a much
more complex protocol that allows a filesystem that starts up to find out
that the device (really: storage) is currently used by another filesystem of
the same type and ask that to "take over".  However, such a solution is not
part of the current design, and a bit too specific to justify the burden of
its implementation.  Compare it with editors and shared text files.  If you
need a custom solution to allow concurrent editing of the same file, you
write one (like, a special emacs mode), you don't make it a feature of the
operating system.
