I don't know about Siva motivations, but I can see some use cases for 
someone wanting to move from OpenLdap to ADS :
- ADS can be embedded into a Java application, OpenLdap can't
- ADS offers StoredProcedures and triggers, OpenLdap  don't
- ADS contains a Kerberos Server, OpenLdap is just a pure Ldap Server

Now, whether  you want to switch or not, I have to say that OpenLdap is 
an incredible piece of software, reliable, production ready, fast, and 
well supported.

So it's up to you. Test it, and use it if it fits your need. We don't 
claim to be better than OpenLdap, we are just another Open Source Ldap 
server !
