It depends on what you mean by "share" information. If you're talking about the ability of one LDAP server to "relay" requests to another LDAP server, I think your biggest problem will be with the LDAP schema... Microsoft has mapped some of its attributes to well-known LDAP attributes and has created new attributes for other information. I currently went through this trying to map Exchange contacts to an LDAP address book... I'm not sure whether the authentication side of things will be better or worse.
