Changes to nsswitch already require restarting things - you even have to
restart your shells in many cases.

The problem to solve here is that daemons can stop working after a glibc
upgrade because they haven't yet loaded nss modules and can't after glibc
is upgraded.

It doesn't solve the problem? If I install nss-ldap then I'm still
screwed if you only statically link a couple nss's. Not to mention the
usual problems with statically linking.

I don't see what benifits you are refering to..
