Hello Andrew,
   We have an answer  for your  following request:

It is certainly unfortunate that this apparent artefact of some per-protocol licence program spills over into the IDL.  Could we please have the full IDL (and preferably the full protocol) reproduced in a single place, or at least the stubs cross-referenced?

A normative reference similar to the following will be added to the Microsoft document - [MS-DTYP] Windows Data Types:

[MS-LSDT] Microsoft Corporation, "Merged IDL for MS-LSAD\MS-LSAT Protocols", December 2008.  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/<lsat_lsad_merged.idl>.

In addition pointers will be added to both the [MS-LSAD] and [MS-LSAT] documents in section 6 similar to the following:

For ease of implementation, the full IDL is provided, where ms-dtyp.idl is the IDL specified in [MS-DTYP] Appendix A.

                Licensees who are implementing both MS-LSAD and MS-LSAT may decide to use a merged version of the respective IDL files for the two protocols, see [MS-LSDT].

Please note that the names of both the downloadable file given in the above link as well as the name [MS-LSDT] are subject to change. The file is not yet available on the Microsoft download site but I expect it to be there soon. I have included the file for your use as an attachment to this email. This file contains a legal notice.

Please let me know if this resolves this request or if you have any additional questions.
