If you care about the nss module being available for all of the
architectures you're running, you simply go through the same process to
convert the nss package to multiarch and install the package for each
architecture.  No special handling has been proposed for nss modules beyond
that - though this is already a substantial improvement over the status quo,
where about half our nss modules have biarch versions available and the
other half don't.
