It should work perfectly well.  The only thing not supported here is the
recording of what account passwords have been disclosed to the RODC.
This won't affect normal operation, but does remove one of the safety
guarantees that a Microsoft DC provides.  (We do expect to correct this
deficiency when we get a chance).
