As soon as you inject all the specific M$ ObjectClasses and Attributes 
to ADS, and as soon as M$ AD is LDAP compliant, yes this is possible.

Basically, it depends on what you want to do. For your own defined 
ObjectClasses and AttributeTypes, this will just work, perfectly well. 
If you are going to use well know OC and AT (ie, inetOrgPerson and 
such), you may also have problems, as M$ deliberately violated the 
existing specs :, page 18.

But for simple usage, that should be ok.

Well, the idea is _not_ to use AD which is not a LDAP server, but mimic 
a LDAP server :) May be I'm an idealist ;)
