It can't replace ld.so. The dynamic and static linkers have quite different (although related) jobs, and have very different goals as well (e.g. performance is utterly paramount for ld.so but less so for ld). The only system which has even *tried* to merge the two is AIX, and I think even it gave up in the end.
