This only works with AD because there is an alternative RPC-based
mechanism to ask for this information. In the general LDAP case, SSSD
can't get any more information than 'getent' is permitted.

This is again not always possible to determine. Most LDAP servers use
server-side policy controls. We basically can't learn this information
until we try to authenticate in many cases.
But would it make sense to have a tool that would provide this info
based on the local cache?
Enumerating everything is probably a server side tool.
For IPA it can be done via CLI and script around.
But for SSSD we might want to have a way to inspect the cache and
display a report based on it. I know we have tools to deal with the
cache so I wonder it this something that Ondrej would consider useful.
