For months, there has been no explanation about the reason, just /don't 
do this/. And queries for a rationale behind this were rarely answered. 
Now there is only this sentence :

We/*_do not recommend_*using the Domain Controller as a file Server. 
This is due to issues with the winbind internal to the Domain 
Controller. The recommendation is to run separate file orMember Servers 

OK, so in fact the only reason is the poor internal winbind 
implementation, so this sentence won't be true after 4.2 release…

In medium sized organizations with sparse small agencies around the 
country/world, having two boxes (either physical or through chroot) is 
not always an option so having the DC and the agency's fileserver merged 
makes sense.
