Can you please explain why (6) has this limitation?  Is this something
that can easily be fixed by modifying libtool?  (Sorry, I am not a
libtool expert.)

If we can remove this limitation of libtool, then (6) sounds like a
nice solution, as it would be easily understood (even by non-libtool
experts like me :-).

By the way, thanks for your analysis.  This is a real problem that
seems to me to be getting worse with time.
