But even if you could specify a second, disjoint for allocating
ids for those users that did not get an ID out of SFU/rfc2307:
What happens when the AD admin decides that a user that did
formerly not have a unix ID should now have a UID in the posix
attributes. Should samba drop its allocated UID for this user?
This would lead to problems since the files on disk are stored
with the uid not the name of the owner and would now belong to
a different user (ID) than expected. The alternative to ignore
new settings in SFU is also not satisfying. So trying to mix these
two sources of UnixIDs for one domain, inevitably leads to problems.

Yep, I think this is best.
