We want to do a soft migration to heimdal - step by step. Changing YP-hosts
using FQDN or nsswitch.conf using DNS would break up some old things
immediately from one day to the next, which is definitely something we don't
want to do ...

In my opinion Heimdal should be aware of NIS-configurations like ours,
because they aren't very uncommon. It is not allways appropriate to make a
such a change to the environment at early stages of a "roll out".
