Thanks for chipping away at and digging into this. I've been following the discussion with much interest since, as discussed before in a (very) different context, I also work with a lot of environments with considerable investment in non-winbind-idmap_ad-accessible user data sources. I've been using the idmap_nss approach for years and would very much like to be able to use idmap_sss where it lends itself to it.
Let me know if there's anything I can do to help move this forward.

Samba also doesn't produce libc or the kernel, still we consume those
system components and generally get some sane behaviour out of the
For some scenarious supporting sss in nsswitch.conf is certainly
possible with a few caveats by using idmap_nss or preferrable idmap_sss.
