I think this is the worst of the possible outcomes, as now you need to
add one more manual step to the configuration of the system.
The point of ipa-server-install is to simplify installation and
configure everything that is *required* except the Operating System.
Requiring something and not installing it would be a net regression.

This is certainly an option, but we would then require to have code for
both ntpd and chronyd upstream, because some older distros use NTP.
Not that this is too difficult, we already have the platform
absraction, so it is a simply a matter of adding chronyd w/o removing
ntpd.
