I agree.

Users account are in Windows directory (point for MS), but they are only
authenticated on Windows machine so they don't actually connect to any
shared resources (point for Samba).

Going this way... You can create as many accounts as You wish in ADS
but if You exceed max connection limit they just can't connect.
To me it's self-explanatory, if Samba does not hit this limitation
it's ok with MS licencing.

Best regards
