You can orphan old packages, and people who care about old ones
can maintain it. 
It will add a workload in that one has to ask for removal of 
old libgal when it is no longer used.

And also another change on libgal part would be necessary:
libgal-dev -> libgalXX-dev

Thinking that some people are doing static links,
it would be better to keep old libraries around.
