At least those attributes are settable via LDAP post the rpc join when
just binding with the machine account (no admin privs needed):

dNSHostName: mthelena.ber.suse.de
servicePrincipalName: CIFS/mthelena.ber.suse.de
servicePrincipalName: HOST/mthelena.ber.suse.de
servicePrincipalName: CIFS/mthelena
servicePrincipalName: HOST/mthelena

(note that you can't add the fqdn SPNs before the dNSHostName is set).

remains only the UPN which neither the machine account nor the privileged
user (not an admin) can change via LDAP.
