AD is approximately Kerberos. And there are myriad reasons, technical,
politcal, organizational, and more, why an organization might not do so.

In our case, we wrote our own code to do the sync process.
For AD to MIT changes it is a DLL that hooks into the AD
as the 'local password quality checking' DLL. On the MIT
side it was the insertion of a small bit of code in about
a half dozen places (princ create, update, delete, chpass,
etc) into the server-side kadm library. If you check the
archives of this group, I'm pretty sure I've posted the
our server-side hooks (anyone who has added their own
incremental-kprop between MIT KDCs is doing essentially
the same thing).
