With the latest DS bits in Fedora you might be able to set the following:

1) Create an IPA domain for advanced clients
2) Install a separate DS instance
3) Sync some of the IPA users into DS (would require some manual
configuration but I suspect is possible). No need to sync passwords though.
4) Use DS with PAM pass through capability. Configure SSSD on the DS
server to use IPA as the authentication and identity source.

This way you will be able to accomplish some part of what you are
looking for.
