Maybe the wiki [1] should be more explicit on this, despite discouraging and suggesting better options it doesn't say it's highly problematic, it's still offered as an option.

Whilst we do not recommend using a Samba DC as a fileserver, they can be 
used as a basic fileserver, you just need to be be aware of the 
limitations. You alse need to accept that a DC in a small office is a 
totally different proposition to a DC in a domain with a lot of users.

I have added an extra warning to the wiki page.
