ASP.NET 2.0, MS AD/ADAM and Authorization Manager (AzMan)

In the thread below from microsoft.public.windows.server.active_directory,
Joe Kaplan point out there is a ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider for AD but
there doesn't appear to be an AD/ADAM provider for Roles and Profiles.

1. Is a separate ASP.NET provider needed to provide AD/ADAM support for
Roles and Profiles?

2. Is MS only planning to support AD/ADAM for Membership and not Roles and
Profiles (in ASP.NET 2.0)?

3. How strategic is a) MS ADAM and b) Authorization Manager? ...should we
continue to use them in our Web apps if ASP.NET isn't commited to releasing
a full set of providers and additional support for them?

Did you look at the ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider for ASP.NET 2.0? It
supports both AD and ADAM AFAIK.

The AzMan/Membership story isn't as good, although AzMan is definitely
still strategic for MS. I think the issue here is that AzMan is a much
richer authorization API than ASP.NET membership. AzMan can solve much
more complex problems. AzMan also has a very good story with the new MS
ADFS federation and web SSO stuff.

I've been reading through the latest documentation on ASP.NET 2.0
membership, role and profile services and there is no mention of using MS
ADAM or AzMan as a ASP.NET 2.0 provider for these 3 services.

How strategic is a) MS ADAM and b) Authorizaion Manager?

Should be be using them if the ASP.NET isn't commited to releasing a
provider and additional support for them?
