That would be the best thing to do; but there are some posibilities to do some sort of
repl on other ways.
At the moment I work on some sort of plugin for a software to authenticate via LDAP with
an AD, and while running I plan to implement an LDAP<-->AD data synchronization. But it
is still far in the future.
In fact, this will *not* do repl of schema data, because this is quite complex in AD (in
comparison with openLDAP).
