Repair all of the parts first. Here you can use apoxy with no
problems. Then assemble the parts back into a chair, using proper
fasteners, and possibly non-epoxy glue that will allow future
dissassembly. Epoxy could be used to fasten dowels into one part,
particularly if the dowel fit in that part is loose due to wear. If
the hole the dowel fits to in the other part is also sloppy, epoxy can
be used to build up the material around the hole to resize and
re-enforce it. Drill the repaired hole to the right size for the
dowel, and re-assemble.
Just one or 2 ways epoxy can be used without making it impossible to
dissassemble and repair in the future.
Getting involved with a hypothetical is a road to nowhere IMHO.
Examination of the damage on a case by case event when it has
happened is another matter.
It's amazing what kind of repairs can be made with a little glass,
some resin, a little filler and some imagination.

One could easily say the same thing about being prepared for the
unsuspected when sailing.
Actually it is quite likely that this chair in question will have a
broken part in the future. It is not much of a hypothetical stretch to
consider a chair that is used enough to loosen the joints will need to
be repaired again in the future in some other way. Assemble it with
epoxy and you essentially make future repairs much more difficult or
impossible. Part of this societies, throw away mentality vs. built to
be repaired, mentality I guess.
So the hood on my truck vibrates on the highway because the latch does
not hold it securely. If I epoxy it in place, problem solved?
