Do you consider this "harm to the gtkg network" a release-critical issue,
such that the package should not be shipped with sarge if it can't be fixed
in time?

If so, I'll go ahead and remove the package from testing now, and we can
consider readding it if the version in unstable is fixed in time.

You may consider putting out a call for help on debian-devel or the like, to
see if someone can NMU the fix for you if you're not able.  (The same would
apply to nss-mdns, of course; which should probably even have an RC bug
opened against it if you're not able to get a t-p-u upload done yourself.)
