No, sorry it isn't, well not from 'samba-tool domain join'

'RODC' is now fairly stable.

'FUNDED' means that somebody has need for that particular part of
Samba and is willing to pay for development, so it will come sooner
rather than later. Anything else will only be worked on if a developer
finds a need or the time to work on it. 

If you need something sooner rather than later, you can always write
your own patches ;-)
