Look, I am with you here, samba no matter where you use it should use 
the rfc2307 attributes if they are available, but they aren't all used 
on the DC. We will just have to wait until the devs get round to making 
the others work. It is no use complaining to me, I actually opened a bug 
on this for 4.2rc2 10886, perhaps if people add to this, something may 
happen, I don't know, I have no control over the devs.
