That said because people are not familiar/don't grock the simplicity of LDAP, they decide to use SQL databases (partly because everyone else does). Now that we have had LDAP for so many years, insisting on using SQL for authentication/authorization and directory services is just not wise. This is similar to using Apache/PHP/MySQL by default when other, simpler/better options are available.
