The reality is that the LDAP API is pretty much the same and you actually use openldap-client and nss-ldap tools even with CentOS-DS. I haven't used CentOS-DS but I have used Fedora-DS and it is built from Fedora-DS. The difference between them is setup of schema, certificates, ACL's/ACI's and I found once I understood OpenLDAP, that Fedora-DS was easy enough to use with only a few questions.
