Even if someone did rely on this, I would still consider it broken
behavior, since StackSet seems to make the implicit assumption that
there is at most 1 workspace with a given name. (E.g. lookupWorkspaces
returns a `Maybe i' instead of a list)

So I think that consistently we either have to change those things in
StackSet or fix DynamicWorkspaces in the way you suggested, even if it
breaks one or two configs. For what it's worth, I think the latter
would be somewhat more sane.
