Yes, that's exactly what. When you think about FreeIPA, at it's core it's not
about dogtag ca, or ntp etc. It's about more effectively managed identity and
policy.

At my work, I have to observe the horrors of a directory instance that has
evolved by people who didn't have the discipline to put all objects in the
correct places, or use the correct objectClasses, who have hacked ACI's etc.

Having a nice webui, the commandline tools enforces consistency in actions that
admins take. It's not about the features as much as using the technology to 
enforce discipline and have vendor supported methodolgies.
