Probably you missed my remark when I deleted the pending tag .
While in principle no real harm is done by your solution it would have
been IMHO perfectly correct to not fix the bug until both projects
really issued a reasonable common header file which would be technically
the best solution. The fact that there is now a workaround seems to
decrease the presure onto this clean solution. I wonder whether you
simply was hunting for open bugs or whether you really need one of
those libraries. If it would be libctapimkt I hope you did not missed
my hint that there are other issues which bring the package into a
state which makes it unfit for release.
