And why ? Because it's a PITA to setup. And it shouldn't have to. Really
if people could remove all the nis/hesiod legacy and focus on making the
"best" techs easy to use we wouldn't be there. It's very close to
pre-HIG Gnome on that point : do everything, and do nothing good.

Right now a RH/Fedora box can plug into lots of different networks but
can drive none of them (easily) which kind of restricts its usage as a
fringe tech in greater wholes managed by something else (and makes in a
no-go fro small networks)

(at least someone dumped the Novell integration at one point)
