When you say libnss-mdns is not useful, do you mean lib32nss-mdns is not
useful either?    Ability to connect to the internet is certainly

Could you expand on what you mean when you say it's not useful?

As for the Depends: question, a Suggests: dependency (if not
Recommends:) might help libnss-mdns/lib32nss-mdns get connected to a
