As that seems to be more like a developer tool,
which can be very dangerous for a random admin to try,
I don't want this to be part of "samba-tool domain".

I'd prefer a standalone script under source4/scripting/devel/.

Also from reading the patch it's not completely clear what
part of the migration should be tested? Just the replication?

What is the desired result of this having an exact copy of the
other DC? Including the same name, ntds guid and it's original invocationID?
