Actually, there is a note regarding these two problems (and some
others) on the LSB test page.  Basically, it's neither a bug in
Debian nor the testsuite, but in the FHS itself.

    2. It is anticipated that a new revision of the FHS (currently
    2.1) will soon be released. Some of the non-conformance issues
    detected by the test suite will be removed with the new
    specification. A list of some of the issues is here[0].

Since /bin/domainname is required by the FHS, the nis package should
be installed in any case.  Currently, the priority is extra.
