The icing on the cake, as they say, could be a small schema extension  
to the Active Directory. Then, on  domain provision with the  
samba-tool we would input the wanted rid back end range. This would be  
  read by every member server and automatically configured. The  
benefits of centralized management of UID/GID without the pain.
