Indeed.  Because doing this is asking for trouble: Emacs loads
packages in a certain order to avoid several subtle problems; doing
that in a different order defeats that.

I think package.el should test with featurep whether a version of a
package is already loaded, and refuse to load it into a running
session, or at least display a warning to that effect, suggesting to
restart Emacs.
