Sure--this is exactly why $WikiLibDirs exists. You have it right in

It's not likely to be a problem. You can also do
$WikiLibDirs = array("somewhere/wiki.d",&$WikiDir,"$FarmD/wikilib.d"); #2
$WikiLibDirs = array(&$WikiDir,"$FarmD/wikilib.d","somewhere/wiki.d"); #3
The first has the advantage that the pages in somewhere/wiki.d
are truly read-only even for the other wikis. You can also do either
of the above without overwriting the pmwiki setting, by doing:
array_unshift($WikiLibDirs,"somewhere/wiki.d"); # same as #2 above
array_push($WikiLibDirs,"somewhere/wiki.d"); # same as #3 above

I suppose--this just seems like overkill to me. $WikiLibDirs really
has not changed much since I put it in (pmwiki-0.2!), and it has never
changed in a way that would cause existing installations to break,
even with the scenario you pose above.

Ummm, you lost me on this one.
