[Samba] NetBios at AD DC mode ?

Just my 2cts: you should definitely turn off NetBios name resolution where possible and rely on DNS and SMB3 (disable older versions). Otherwise you are calling out for security and privacy issues. 
And I really appreciate that Samba wants to get rid of that legacy - thanks for that!
Best Regards, Joachim

If you see 2008r2, 2012 and even 2016 and 2019 acted as AD DC but I think you saw it, it is (NetBios) still at a place here, despite on AD DC mode.

As far as I know there are many small/medium LANs where NetBios features such as neighborhood, folders, printers sharing using NetBios names resolving and others are still used.

In my opinion It would be better to offer to admins/users alternative - who wants they uses v2 and not uses NetBios, who wants they return to v1 and uses NetBios that they could make a decision on their own And this will be fully identical functioning as Windows DCs behaviour.
As for compatibility also.
