@Ricky. Maybe you could you include information about being able to have 
whatever home directory you like by pulling unixHomeDirectory? It 
overcomes the restriction of the smb.conf template. I don't think the DC 
winbind does this yet so include a health warning too? Maybe this would 
be a good place to link out to:
since the s4 howto seems to cater only for the DC (if it's the howto I 
think you have in mind)
