Just FYI, SPML is a relatively new standard from OASIS that defines the interactions between identity management authorities and dependent systems that must be provisioned with identity information in order to perform their normal function. It's really just a thin wrapper around DSML that makes is slightly more technology agnostic and extensible.

This may be pie in the sky. I don't know why but the post about SPML,
which I also have to admit I'd never heard of, reminded me of DSML.

I'm not entirely sure but I reckon a DSML provisioner used in
conjunction with something like the Microsoft tool linked below could
be a mechanism to access Active Directory data. Although granted it
could well be that the LDAP provisioner would be sufficient for AD

DSML also being an open standard is not confined to AD but equally
well applies to any suitable LDAP server.
