What about the following idea: ID mapping from its generic
task does not have anything to do with ID allocation.

Proposal: Why don't we have two separate module interfaces,
one for id mapping and another one for allocation. idmap_tdb
and idmap_ldap would support the set_mapping call, whereas
idmap_ad and others would not. Separate from this question
is the task to allocate new ids. I could imagine setups
where this would give additional flexibility. And then we
have less pain later when we want to switch to a 'allocate
both' strategy.
