I guess this is what I object to.   I don't particularly like having a
new directive in a configuration file which lots of applications read

I would rather that a separate configuration file be read, for example,
with a list of shells(5) format files to consult.

In current, this could be an optional thing, activated in nsswitch.conf,
e.g. make a ports source for shells, and activate it with:
     shells: files ports

or whatever you would like to call the source.
