We attempted to do something in this area (sort of AD personality) a few
years ago, but it just doesn't work.

What we did instead is to allow creating cross realm trusts between a
FreeIPA domain and an AD domain. Unfortunately Samba 4 AD still does not
support forest trusts so we are limited to interoperate only with
Windows AD for now. Once Samba 4 AD will support forest trusts then
you'll be able to use FreeIPA for your linux/unix machines and Samba 4
for your Windows machines.
