As a counter point, at the very minimum, the Mono and QT owners don't seem to believe that you can escape your LGPL responsibilities in that way. E.g. see http://www.mono-project.com/FAQ:_Licensing
Don't get me wrong, I would love it if the legal interpretation of the LGPL allows that, even though it it also strikes me as "wrong" in the moral sense. Clearly the notion of upgrading a library is meaningless if you can't actually run the result.
