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

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..
