Store service binaries in storage-container for access of multiple containers

Hey everyone,
I was wondering if someone had tried storing binaries (specifically dependencies) in a separate container in order for multiple containers to make use of the data in them as while being mounted.
It’s basically the same idea as a storage-container, But having it store binaries…

I was thinking that the overhead should not pose that much of an issue if the containers were to be present on the same host, As there is no fabric they have to go through and no protocol they have to use in order to reach the data, and it can still be made available for multiple containers.

I’ll get to testing it right after I’m done writing this question and come up with the answers, I just wanted to know if I’m missing something and this idea is based on my ignorance of some field, Or that it could actually work on certain use-cases.

Thanks in advance!
