Other than that, you could easily have collisions with other libraries

I think that collision risk is the main issue, indeed, when you mix and match various libraries (particularly those with the proverbial kitchen sink! ;-)). Java people resolved it with the package names using domain names as base, a bit convoluted, but at least minimizing the risks.
