Yes and no.

In 2.2 we have our own kdb backend and we decided to retire ipa_kpasswd
and use kadmind instead.
But I still prevent kadmin from doing a lot of operations, because
kadmind has no clue how to properly create an ipa computer object or an
ipa user.

In time we may teach kadmin how to properly handle some of the
principals, but for now I am simply preventing it from messing up the
tree by crating bare principals in the wrong place, with the wrong (or
missing) data attached to it.
