RODC support has been funded as is pretty good as of 4.8.  There are
still some limitations but they are greatly reduced. 

The roadmap needs a bit more love sadly.  Subdomains need more work.  I
got a fair bit going a while back (hence the option) be never got it
finished, and the general suggestion is to have one large domain if
possible anyway.  

The work on inter-forest trusts helps the subdomain stuff a lot, as
there are common foundations, but there is still a lot to do.
