[Samba] Why ADS if I can join the ADS domain as an NT 4 server?

Hello, all,

I can not easily find an answer to this question: why do we need samba 3.0 to 
join an ADS, if samba 2.x can join the ADS domain just as well, even though 
the PDC is in native mode?  What's the benefit for samba 3.0 to be a member 
of ADS?  What restrictions I have if joining samba 2.x to the domain as an 
NT4 server?

I bet people on this list should know better than me.  Can somebody point me 
the direction?  Thanks a lot.
