        I'll deprecate ash as a shell, in that case, and look for a
 real shell to use as a /bin/sh (bash makes me uneasy).

        Do we have a non-toy shell to use as /bin/sh replacement then?

pdksh is what OpenBSD uses as /bin/sh. The binary is slightly larger than ash, and the RSS is about 100k larger.
