RDBMS and LDAP wars

Hello All,

Planning to use LDAP for storing orgchart and physical building/room heirarchies.

The DBA folks are touting NO LDAP DO IT IN RDBMS because:
	- LDAP has no referential integrity
	- moving trees/branches is not possible
	- no ACID transactions
	- no reporting tools like Crystal reports

Anyone have wisdom on dealing with this? Something like a "rules of thumb" or "best practices" for what goes in a RDBMS vs LDAP and how they should could be used together in complimentary roles?
