It would at least simplify things for my nslcd package which provides
name lookups (user, group, hosts, etc) via LDAP. It currently has a long
list of things in the X-Start-Before header which is ugly.

The thing is, that nslcd may also have a dependency on hostname lookups
(e.g. if the LDAP server is specified as a hostname instead of an IP
address) which makes things even more complex.

For some background you may want to check out
  #478807, #544093 and #585968
