For the IPA-AD case, probably:
For the direct AD integration case (which will share the underlying code
with the IPA-AD integration case), the admin would opt-in with a
sssd.conf option, essentially saying 'let me always use shortnames for
all domains, there are no name conflicts' and then sssd would not
require shortnames for trusted domains.
The ticket that tracks the shortname-for-trusted-domains case in general
Please note the tickets are in the "Future releases" milestone at the
moment, but we do plan them for the next RHEL release; the upstream
milestones just need a bit more grooming.
