Oh, that's unfortunate :/ But I could live without CA or DNS.

Which Ubuntu do you mean? Current dev one (but it is sync from sid)? Because 
as far as I can tell, Xenial is pretty outdated for 4.4.x (but Xenial is 
pretty Okay'ish for 4.3.2).

Maybe a note in package description would be nice. Because current one implies 
that everything is working as it reads:

 Cross-realm trusts with Active Directory in IPA require working Samba 4
 installation. This package is provided for convenience to install all 
 dependencies at once.

FreeIPA documentation is kind of hard to get good grip on. So many things 
there and it is hard to to tell if they are current or no longer apply. What 
is more, users might not have a clue what Debian's Samba has been compiled 
against nor have a clue what requirements are.
