This is the one thing I don't get, seriously: What is the
difference between a multi-domain AD tree/forest and an
OpenLDAP that has multiple independent subtrees? How can a
government regulation favor the specific Active Directory
Technology over something else? I would really like to see
the technical wording of this requirement and see how we can
match that with a fully standards compliant directory
server but without having to mix all accounts in one bucket.

Do you have a reference for that?
