[Samba] mixing idmap_ldap with smbldap-useradd

Regarding userid-allocation: Can ldap idmap alloc and smbldap-useradd
from the smbldap-tools be safely used together?

The winbind idmap backend seems to use the uidNumber of
ou=idmap,dc=example,dc=com as storage for the next available user-ID.

smbldap uses sambaDomainName=EXAMPLE,dc=example,dc=com as default but
this can be configured.

Is it safe to configure ou=idmap,dc=example,dc=com in smbldap in order
to let both winbind and smbldap allocate new userids from the same pool?
