The feature here is to not break packages. Changing libtool -no-undefined
to imply ld --no-undefined -- at this point -- is not an option IMHO.

Also, libtool added -no-undefined before ld added --no-undefined, so some
might argue that you are barking up the wrong tree if you think things
are inconsistent. Not that shifting blame is going solve anything...
