mixed OpenGL vendor drivers

ATI and Nvidia ship separate version of libGL.so, for Linux and probably 
for other operating systems. Now I want to make a Live media with
"out of the box" fantastic OpenGL support for a wide range of
graphic cards.

Is the replacement by vendors of libGL something dictated by the 
architecture of Xorg or the OpenGL spec? What are good solutions to switch 
the library on the fly?

(That written, I admire the efforts to bring open sourced GL drivers on 
the table. But artists need for work horse graphics really fast drivers. 
Otherwise coe in danger to simply switch the platform.)

kind regards
