The general problem is that installation process (aka ipa-client-install) is a
mess without documented design (at least when it comes to DNS parts) so it is
quite hard to do the reverse on --uninstall.

Given that were planning to implement integration with external DNS in future
we might want to postpone ipa-client-install changes related to DNS and do
overhaul at once.

For example host plugin will need changes as many assumptions about DNS usage
are oversimplified or simply wrong so delaying changes might save some
headache caused by two behavior changes in two subsequent releases.
