Well ... hmm ... I think that everyone not familiar with samba's security
scheme will use "security=server" then because it sounds best. Potentially
a lot of unnecessary work in the mailing lists for the gurus, if one asks

Every friend of mine wishing to implement a PDC with samba fist used
"security=domain" - not that my friends are that stupid, but I think the
amount of users doing the same will grow significantly when PDC support is
an official feature.
