No this would not work for people that want a consistent mapping and
want to use their own mapping facility.

And no, requiring to do an rm winbindd_idmap.tdb and restarting samba is
not what I consider a nice and easy way to do it.

Forking a script for each mapping when idmap_external is a local cache
would be overkill.
