It could be the world, but in particular, I don't think we will
implement in the near future:
 - printing
 - interfaces only used by NT4 management tools (and not MMC)
 - RAP interfaces (pre-RPC interfaces to some functionality)
 - two-way replication with AD
 - A more than minimal SWAT
 - forest support (would require that two-way replication)

Given the developer resources available, pretty much any major feature
not already present is not going to be present in a final release. 

The only border case is member server support, which I hope to see
improve (frankly, we need all that code for trusted domains anyway)
before we make a release.
