That is a really great article!

If there is a strict requirement to split it up, ovbiously the commands
to create the user and extract the keytab can be done on the DC and the
 result passed to another server.

I've long wished for a patch to our DNS server to support shared-secret 
TSIG to make this easier, but with this script written there isn't
really much need any more.
