This has been spoken about before in great detail on this forum, anybody know where it is?

After doing a few rear arm bearings i'm not convinced grease nipples will do anything at all.

it depends on which technique you follow, theres possibilities for some of them, but all the technique i've seen misses huge big steps and thus probably won't work! However keeping the bearings well lubed can only be good for them.

Best thing to do is undo the bolt over 10,000 miles and rotate the bearings through 180 degrees, shame its not so easy!
