Ok, no problem.

One alternative would be to adopt the package both in debian and as a
upstream (or convince (e)glibc people to pick it up) and care about it
if it's important for Debian.

I don't know the Debian infrastructure enough to be able to answer the
question, but wouldn't libnss-ldap do the job - DD accounts are stored
in LDAP, aren't they?
