You don't have to manually track the IDs, if you are using your own
scripts, you can script around this by adding the two missing
attributes and then updating these after adding a new user or group

Corrupt databases are possible whatever you use, but when you get one,
yes it is nasty.

Agree with all those points, though I should comment on the last one.
Work has been made to make it so that the DOMAIN ranges can overlap,
though this will mean that you will probably not be able to use
'winbind use default domain = yes', not sure if this will make 4.7

I would tend to agree, if you only have one or two fileservers, you
can use the 'rid' backend, any more than that, use the 'ad' backend. If
you use a DC as a fileserver (not really recommended, but sometimes you
have to) use the 'ad' backend.
