OT? ldap permanently in nsswitch.conf

I hope this is not too off-topic...
I was wondering why wouldn't it be possible to put a permanent
entry in /etc/nsswitch.conf for ldap.
I have tried it and it seems to work: I remove the nss_ldap package
and keep the ldap entry in hosts, passwd and shadow in the /etc/nsswitch.conf
file. I don't even get error messages in the logs. It seems glibc just ignores
it if it doesn't find nss_ldap.so.
