I would like to dedicate some resources to testing this, would I be
right in saying that because only the schema is supported and not the
functional level, that I should be able to put a windows 2012 R2
server as a domain controller with the schema master FSMO role, that I
can add Samba 4.11.0rc1 to that domain and have it function with its
reduced subset for rudimentary functions that are already supported?

If so, are there any FSMO roles that Samba can hold, like domain
naming, or must all the roles be mastered by a windows host?

Any particular features you would like us to test in tandem with the
funciionality that we will be testing for our future use when this is
production released?
