Sure. The Heimdal database can record principals from any number of realms.
In Kerberos 5 the realm name the client wants is part of the authentication
handshake, so the KDC can distinguish them easily enough. (Kerberos 4 would
be a problem.)

Yes. It also actually executes a search, which may be slow, while the direct
mapping is fast. Of course, if you have uid indexed, and you only expect
about 100-500 users anyway, I'm sure it will be fast enough either way.

The 2.1 servers stand up to quite a lot more load than the 2.0 servers...
