For what it's worth, I have done exactly this for an account I use in
Apache for LDAP authentication, it sounds similar to your use case here.

In my Apache config I have:
    AuthLDAPBindDN cn=apacheuser,cn=Users,dc=mydomain,dc=uk
and I have just checked in AD, this user is a member of 'Domain Guests' and
not 'Domain Users'.

I think, if you are only doing LDAP searches and not using any "Windows
style" functionality, then this will work just fine.

Try it, and see? Worst case, you just need to change the membership back
again :)
