This is the first I'm hearing about an LDAP storage service implementation. I can't find documentation on that anywhere. Can you point me in the right direction?

There's already an LDAP storage service implementation, have at it.

The advantage of the database use case with consent is that it's not important. The worst case with an error is you ask again. That's very different than using a database for identifiers or data.
