Thanks!  We look forward to testing this out.  

What I'm wondering is how did you verify that an element was not
required - just that it isn't mentioned in the doc, or did you delete it
from a running windows DC and try repetitive DCpromo (or something

Do you have a list of the DN values that may be found in the normal
provision of a Windows DC that are not required (ie, those you removed)?
If you have this, it would help our validation by being able to look at
this from both directions.
