yes, but those means usually specify both AD and IPA users, right?

I always thought "ipausers" is a handy shortcut for selecting IPA users
only and not AD users.

We should probably turn ipausers into a fully virtual group that is
added to the user's Authorization data in the KDC (MS-PAC or in future
This way it will be possible to reference it in sssd but will not create
issues with memberships in the server.

But we need the PAD first, I guess.
(we could do something with authentication indicators too, but that
would be a hack).
Yep. If we need ipausers for POSIX context interpretation on IPA
clients, PAD would be our choice as we already do with MS-PAC for AD

Within LDAP server, if we want to address all IPA users to do some mass
operations on them, I think we probably should have some specialized
control that would give 389-ds chance to optimize on building this list
of users before applying an operation to them. This would be something
non-standard but more efficient than what we are doing right now.
