I agree. I think it is a cop out. Open Source is ready for the 
Enterprise. Whereas some of the closed loop stuff is not really.
Since my 24/7 experience with open over the past decade+ has told
me it is much more creative. It gives more than it receives. 
I have heard from reliable sources its implied use with over 
50-80k users. So I seriously doubt that it is a problem. That is 
why I want to get up to speed on openldap personally. Since 
I would like to apply in env like that when I grow up. ;-)
