I agree; there are many (unfinished) proposals for Ubuntu and a few (already) finished implementations from other sources (eBox, Mandriva Directory Server), but the FreeIPA project seems to bring together not only authentification and user/group management, but also Directory Services on a larger scale (think of Group Policies).

Plus, as a benefit, we wouldn't have to invent the wheel again, and the FreeIPA project seems like a thought-through solution on enterprise level.
