One feature that using pam_ldap in addition to pam_krb5 provides is

Otherwise you're right, there's no pressing need to go this route.
I've been able to enforce password policy just using
pam_krb5/mit_krb5, and heimdal seems to be able to do it using the
password_quality section in krb5.conf. I know you talked before about
password policy enforcement available in CVS, but what does this provide
you cannot achieve using the functionalities found in mit or heimdal?
The module I'm referring to only works for LDAP Simple Binds. If you're
in a pure SASL/GSSAPI environment it's not necessary, but if you need to
support legacy apps that only know how to do Simple Binds, then it's useful.
