Exactly. The flexibility and greater future proof-ness is valuable.

OK, that's lucky. However, I would not assume the status quo "forever."
It's prudent to plan ahead. That's Enterprise Extender.

I wouldn't be nervous about EE here, but if for some reason you're nervous,
just backstop EE with CTCA if you wish. Anything *could* break, so
following that logic logically, use both paths. And, of course, configure
both correctly and test. That's always true.
