With AD you get exactly what _you_ put into the directory. There are no
algorithms or separate databases used to confuse an already complicated
issue. You put rfc2307 in AD and you get it back out when you need it,
e.g. when a user logs in.

sssd just works: there is plain English documentation available and you
get rfc2307 out of the box. The same day;)

otoh, if you must stick with winbind there are reports of success here.
Just one more thought to bugzilla it.
