As far as I know, you can't do this. I may be missing something, but I
don't really see the need--define two lib objects and use a CASE
cObject to decide which to use in your rendering:

lib.A = COA
lb.A { ... }

lib.B = COA
lib.B { ... }

content = CASE
content {
  key = {$someConstant}

  default < lib.A

  value_a < lib.A

  value_b < lib.B

I may have overlooked a situation where just conditionally including
the TS is preferable, but your message was a little light on details
