The sanity or otherwise of that approach is so wildly variable that it can only be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. dlopen() adds a significant comprehensibility overhead compared to just invoking the library's API directly, and may well preclude sane-and-convenient use of the normal programming model for the library in question.
(The latter effect becomes particularly severe when you're writing a C++ program using C++ libraries, of course.)
