That is something that needs to be looked at.

In my use cases it is very common for several projects to use
the same recorded tracks, and that could be a few gigabytes.
When using non-destructive editing these are de facto read-only,
so they can be shared.

An app can always cheat the SM. Even if the SM forbids symbolic
links in a session directory, all it takes for an app is saving
a directory path as part of the current configuration.

But it would be better if the SM were aware of the existence
of such data, so that it could e.g. show of list of it upon
request. This would then require apps to explicitly declare
paths to external data. It would probably be a rather simple
extension to NSM.
