Currently, if using netcfg to connect to a network without dhcp, netcfg replace the content of /etc/resolv.conf with the DNS configured per-connection. So if I want to use a common set of DNSs, I have to put them in every configuration files.

So I think netcfg could use the same mechanism as dhcp, using resolve.conf.head and resolve.conf.tail.
This task depends upon
