There are also, which were on the Samba side, the attached.

I'm not really sure about them - I think

source4/heimdal/lib/krb5/init_creds_pw.c KRB5_NT_ENTERPRISE_PRINCIPAL
ctx->flags.canonicalize = 1

is trying to do the same as the Samba-side commit:

testprogs/blackbox/ --enterprise --canonicalize

Is that the case, and so could we drop the Heimdal side now?

I also don't know what 
source4/heimdal/lib/krb5/mcache.c anonymous resolving
is for or fixes.  Can you shed some light on this?
