Thanks. The results are starting to become visible:

1) The libc from the main udeb gets reduced by a huge amount by stripping
unused symbols when it is included in D-I initrds, although the full
version gets loaded later. But the library reduction does make
comparing the "normal" sizes incorrect.
2) libnss-dns-udeb is currently included in all initrds, so splitting that
out is possibly not needed (anymore).
3) But libnss-files-udeb is only included in a small number of initrds and
thus splitting it out helps reduce the size of all other initrds.
