Last followup -- it turns out that the AD domain is a subtree of the DIT
we're using in 389-ds; so instead of sync/replication, I'm going to set
up a chained sub-suffix.

I think I've answered part of my own question by trolling through

So the goal here is to have user password changes and account
terminations make it from AD -> 389-ds, without having all entries from
AD show up.
I would be happy with some kind of (unix filesystem-speak) symlink
capability from one suffix to another, but I don't know the right
terminology to use in searching for documentation on doing this. Any
suggestions would be welcome.
