Just one small problem. I never progressed the password
change protocol from NT client to DC. I figured out how
to disable the RC4 (?) encryption of the RPC by sending
a certain type of NTLMSSP response, but not what the RC4
key was. Have you gotten anywhere with that Jeremy?

If the RPC isn't encrypted then I verified that the
password change protocol is as documented, incidentally
exposing a little hole in that the LM hash is used to
encrypt the new password even if LM-FIX has been applied
to disable the use of it.
