For my use case it is.  Essentially the system will be application auth for
separate groups that have no need to know of one another, almost a
multi-tenant mode.  I wanted to expose a 'self service' url.  I've found a
community ipa portal for password resets and perhaps that with slight
changes can resolve this.  I understand why it's that way but had hoped to
be able to apply a bit more of an ACI; I've been able to ratchet the
accounts down to just this one item thus far by restricting access to
attributes.  I appreciate the response and if / when I find a solution I'll
post it for anyone else that would require it.
