Incidentally, this is quite a long list.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DeveloperWiki:usrlib seems to suggest
that the list will contain only a few items, but the actual number is of the
order a couple of dozen packages.

I am rather reticent to try something untested, especially when I see the
--force option in use. So yes, PLEASE, can a developer address this issue so
that I can have more confidence that I won't end up with a hosed system.

(I am very puzzled as to why this is happening at all. This is not a system to
which anything fancy has ever been done. If I'm having this problem, I don't
know why lots of others aren't seeing it too.)
