It’s an interesting thought and may be useful in some scenarios.
The “channels” proposal by Pjotr and Leo looks at this issue:

However, as Andy wrote, there are situations where you’d rather avoid
having separate dependency graphs since that hinders composition.  For
example, you could end up with a situation where your guildhall repo is
stuck with Guile 2.2.0 and libc 2.24, even though the main Guix repo has
Guile 2.2.3 and libc 2.25.
