A huge part of Keycloak's value-add is it provides the UI for login,
registration, acct/credential/device/realm management. If these AD/LDAP
services are read-only, then there's not a lot Keycloak can offer you.
than viewing them as read-only services, I view them as directory
services that your ecosystem of apps (internal as well as external)
ranging from browsers to mobile can utilize.
Also, for Keycloak 1.0.Final, we're focusing solely on securing
and RESTful services. We can't have too many tangents or feature creep.
Agreed - long term thinking.
