What do people use, then?

For what it's worth, our OTP sequences are upstream of OpenLDAP (when encountering an OTP user, OpenLDAP merely works as a proxy, viz. contrib/slapd-modules/passwd/radius.c). Our OTP servers provide RADIUS support so this was a bit of a no-brainer drop in...and of course we had this preexisting infrastructure (for a couple decades at this point) to work with and, for the usual reasons, zero desire to multihome (on legacy + OpenLDAP) the sequence data.

Admittedly from a "ground up" fresh deployment scenario, that would be an unneeded additional service versus your approach; you're Probably On The Right Track strictly speaking. I'm merely answering the "what do people use" with one illustration.
