Samba PDC as a password server

Another quick thought/question:

A couple of times either Luke or Jeremy (can't remember, sorry) has said that
in order to get group management and other things from User Manager for
Domains working properly would require the ability to write to the smb.conf
file.  Why would you want to store  that type of information in the smb.conf?
Wouldn't it make more sense to store this info, on a per-user basis, in the
smbpasswd file?

Sorry if my memory is failing and the answer was obvious or something.
