No, there are at least two other arguments:

1) Shipping a re-linkable kit may be a lot of work, if you can't 
dynamically link against the LGPL part.

2) Shipping a re-linkable kit may be IMPOSSIBLE if the other things you 
link have distribution restrictions (such as licensing terms) -- you 
couldn't do it for any of the current game consoles, for example.
