This sounds right to me.  If I'm hearing you correctly, there is a
configuration file in the output of the icedtea package which needs to
be updated whenever the nss package is updated.  I believe the correct
way to accomplish that is to use "static composition" or "late static
composition" [1].  I'm sure a convenient mechanism for this exists in
Guix, but since I haven't done it myself, I'm not sure of the details.
