Right.

Not really because it doesn't actually work without nsis-data, at least the 
installer stubs are needed.

But with the Debian approach (BR the MinGW toolchain and build it completely 
from source that way), we could have a fully functional (or almost) native NSIS 
(well, as native as NSIS is, it's a cross-tool just like MinGW, the generated 
installers are Window$-only), even with plugins, and completely built from 
source.
