Sort of correct.  But these are specific OU cells and not
a forest wide cell.  At the risk of digressing into a Likewise
specific thing, an OU cell stores the meta data for objects
in a container inside the OU.  So you can add a user or group
across a one-way trust to an OU cell and the UNIX attribute
information is stored inside the OU in *your* domain.
So in this case, you don't send LDAP queries across a one-way
trust.  In the RFC2307 forest cell case, the UNIX attribute
information is stored *on* the actual user and group object.

Idmap_adex only supported the RFC2307 forest "cell" since this
was easy to do using the MS "Identity Services for Unix" management

Make sense?
