So, you are suggesting that there are sites where the NTLM and kerberos
password databases are separated, that AD trusts the external kerberos
database and as such Samba should use it for the kerberos machine account?

The issue is not that password change protocols, but the kerberos
administration protocols. Samba does not speak any of them, apart from
the 'microsoft' one, being LDAP get/set requests, and a password set
I do not think it is wise for Samba to create the keytab in this
