I'm thinking of nss as being non-network nss issues, while network 
includes resolv issues.  18356 (currently network) would be nss, 18724 
(currently network) would be libc (putpwent isn't NSS), libc issues that 
would be nss include at least 12459, 15385, 17250.

You mean libc?  I think the problem with it is there are too many issues 
there (which to some extent can only be addressed by people working 
through them and fixing them - or, where issues request new features, 
seeking consensus on libc-alpha about whether those features are desirable 
at all; that also applies to issues in various other components).
