Lightroom: Add collections to multiple collection sets

It would be great if we could a collection to more than one collection set. Sometimes I do a shoot for one client, and then another client also wants to license those images. I have my collection sets organised by client, so when this happens, I end up creating lots of duplicate collections. If we could assign a collection to multiple sets, then this would be more efficient, and if I want to make any changes to the collection, I'd only have to do it once instead of multiple times.

I don't see how that would work without duplicating the collection. What about this: You could make a smart collection, that gets all the photos of the first collection, and put that in the other set.

My idea wouldn't work in the current implementation, it is a feature request. Your workaround is interesting though. I didn't think of using smart collections for that.
