You understand incorrectly.  Libc++ is specifically designed so that you can use it in the same process as libstdc++.  What you can not do is use it interchangeably with libstdc++.  For example, if you define a function that takes a std::string, then you must pass it a std::string from the same STL that it was compiled with (libstdc++ or libc++).  Libc++ puts all of its code in a non-standard namespace and then imports it into the std namespace, so you will get a linker error if you try this.
