You talk the talk, but when was the last time you *actually* needed a
glibc package right out of the factory?
I currently use glibc from factory for one game:
https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1163301

So that is a packaging problem of the game then. They cannot expect
everyone has a particular glibc version, so either they rebuild it
for an older glibc, bundle libc (applicable to any other library),
or just outright ship source code so it can be built for whatever libc the user
is running.
