... oops, I seem to have failed to finish this paragraph.

Ruling out authentication of identities means that you give up on
centrally controlled access policies -- something that FreeIPA is
good at, besides just storing identities.

In other words, instead of having increasing number of shared
secrets around your network, it might be useful to adopt the
approach when idenities can get created without many restrictions,
and what you allow those identities to do is what matters.
