It seems I did misunderstand you initially. I thought you where
talking about integrating LDAP into the base to allow NSS/PAM stuff to
be provided via LDAP.

Right, this is the only major discussion we had in the last months in
the public lists. And as long as we (FreeBSD) don't have this, we
don't even need to think about getting an rc.conf out of LDAP (we
wouldn't be self-hosting anymore if we do this before we have LDAP
stuff in the base).
Far duller than a serpent's tooth it is to spend a quiet youth.
