On uclibc, while there's (so far) no binary-only software on ARM to worry about, uclibc still loses in features and performance (and has a bit more bugs). On these grounds I would recommend against it.

What about musl? Anyone have remarks similar to the one above for it?

musl lacks many features, and focuses only on standard-correct small functions.

This means it occasionally breaks software that works fine on uclibc, due to some nonstandard-but-defacto usage for example.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Thanks, not being competent I miss these notions, which are, however, quite interesting.
