We are working to get you and answer for the entire table as you requested.  At this time I don't have an ETA for completion but I will update you by the end of the week, regardless of whether I have a complete answer or not.

I did want to ask you if this link to the MS-SAMR document gives you the information you need with regard to the supplementalCredentials attribute http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc245499.aspx?

Has there been any progress in documenting the format of these attributes?
