Thank you for taking the time to answer - I appreciate.

Yes, it helps : it probably explains some of the confusion while 

Again, thanks for your time.

At this point, I have to say that my client is reverting his deployment 
of Samba as a RODC - this issue on one side, and the authentication 
limitation on the other (see another thread about password updates on 
RODC) makes them cautious.

The release notes seems to show that this feature is ready, now it seems 
there is still some roadblocks for end users in production environments.

Is there any assessment of missing features and/or blocking bugs for 
samba as an RODC (apart from the two already mentioned)? Any roadmap 
related to it?

I found the following TODO related to the RODC feature, but I don't 
think it's up to date? 

I'd like to collect as many details as possible to clarify expectations 
with users, and maybe help close the gap by contributing documentation 
and/or code where possible.
