Even with multiple libraries wp_deregister_script is not needed. With
e.g. wp_enqueue_script('my-script', get_template_directory_uri() .
'/js/my-script.js', array('jquery'), '1.0.0', true); you can enqueue as
many JS as you want, without conflicts, what you already know. Now just
like PHP JS can be overridden with another e.g. my-custom-fancybox as well,
so you don't need to deregister. This applies only to WPORG, you can do
whatever you please on your site, which doesn't really apply to this topic
anyways :) Quick example
