If you still want to access information related to graduated users, they
should continue to live in your central user directory, LDAP.

I'm sure there are institutions and organizations with many millions of
user records in their LDAP database.  Unless your institution is storing
large amounts of binary data for each LDAP user, the records are extremely
small.  LDAP was built for this use case, with its highly configurable
structure and containers. I can't think of any better solution that
continuing to store the users in LDAP.
