Agreed.  That's close to word for word what I told them.  However, the 
perception that Windows AD trusts Linux IPA scares them, even though Windows 
admins still have total control over who can see what in their environment.  
It's all perception because Linux is foreign and Windows is well known on that 
side of the fence.  Something to keep in mind when you build it.  Perception 
drives lots of decisions and they're not always rational.  Meantime, I can 
probably find some Microsoft documentation about what trusts really mean that 
might make them more comfortable.
