FBA pointing to Active Directory

1.) Can ExCM's FBA be configured to point to Active Directory (i.e. external user hits site, enters username/pw of their AD account in the web-based form, and is authenticated)?

2.) All the documentation I have seen indicates that FBA pointing towards a SQL store is advisable over AD when working with external users.  I've seen lots of informal postings and logical reasoning but I was wondering if someone could provide verifiable information (i.e. from Microsoft or some other trusted source) to help justify my position.  I will keep looking but any feedback would help save time...
