It's not. It's entirely acceptable to bump a soname if there's a good reason 
to and dependent packages WILL have to get rebuilt. It would be impossible 
to update something like xulrunner for security fixes otherwise.

That said, in this case, IMHO there are too many dependent packages to force 
such a global rebuild.
