No I read that!

To me it says:

 1. We know that there are issues with using SSSD and we're working on it
 2. We'll continue to support you if you choose this configuration
 3. We're not ready to offer a working supported alternative yet, again,
    we're working on it

In my experience, RHEL7 works well with standalone Winbind.

Unfortunately, I can't get it to work properly on RHEL8 without SSSD.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but the latest Redhat documentation 
continues to push SSSD + Winbind ad the way to go:


I would love to dump SSSD on my RedHat/CentOS/Fedora systems... but 
we're not quite there yet!
