It can be very boring to update every application and I guess that libraries are statically linked just like I guess it happens on MacOS X.

IMHO system libraries are part of the operating system, application specific libraries *may* be included in a self-contained environment for the app itself.

With dpkg is possible to create a kind of package - a task, so you can create a task named xyz, the user install xyz and apt downloads and installs the whole dependencies chain, so the user experience is just the same as download a .pbi that installs a self-contained app.
