Yes this does (or at least might) work if you provision like for the AD
DC, but set --server-role=standalone.

However, we don't expect to support this long-term, as we will want to
reduce the 'weird' combinations, and push folks to a supported set of
options.  For example, I would like to change our startup code to allow
you to start 'samba' and have it just 'do the right thing' starting just
smbd and winbindd if you are a standalone server, or the full AD DC if
you are that.  This would break what you propose, which is why I don't
recommend it. 

Can you explain more why you want to use our internal LDAP as a
standalone server?
