Thats not what i said.
Theres nothing wrong or unwanted between ADS - S4 sync.
The LDAP Backend _is_ the relevant Part. Many Enterprise-sized Companys 
have OL already implemented as
Single Point of Administration, mostly high customized. They dont want 
to change their
complete LDAP-Backend Infrastructure, in most cases they just want to 
have a kind of working Sync
between their ADS and OL (or S4/OL).
